Terrestrial Telescopes

A terrestrial telescope is a telescope that produces an erect image. Erection is achieved either by a lens (for a long instrument) or a prism (for a compact instrument). Very small terrestrial telescopes of low power may be of the Galilean type.


The Photonics Buyers' Guide is a comprehensive resource for verified providers of Terrestrial Telescopes. Profiles and contact information for manufacturers and suppliers are provided by the companies and verified by our editors.
