Illustration for article titled Hubbles Personal Telescope Is Beautifully Vintage

This is one of Edwin Hubble's personal telescopes, the one Hubble used before he finished his Ph.D. It was given to a teacher when he left for graduate school and has been handed down from generation to generation. The telescope is beautifully vintage and to just think about the great man's eye looking through it, and how he saw the rest of the galaxy, makes it one of a kind. [BoingBoing]
