Telescope Puts Focus on Luxury Garden Accents

Telescopes & Optics: Have you ever considered placing a handmade bronze telescope in the backyard to enhance the outdoor decorum? The garden telescope, which is a recreation of the Porter Garden Telescope with improved optics, is sold exclusively by Telescopes of Vermont. Russell Porter, one of the designers of the Palomar Mountain Observatory 200-inch Hale telescope, made the original Porter Garden Telescope in the 1920s.

The ornate bronze telescope-which is offered with an optional two-inch marble display, can be yours for just $37,000. Each one is a numbered limited-edition sculpture as well as a telescope and a sundial. Military satellite optics engineers designed these instruments with the contemporary optics. A telescope is 35 inches high when fully extended, and about 70 inches overall when including the pedestal.

The telescope can remain permanently outdoors, or it can be easily moved and placed elsewhere. The mirror and eyepieces of the telescope are readily removable in just seconds. The designing firm generally works directly with landscapers to ensure the installation of the recreated Porter Garden Telescopes are done tidily.
