The Porter Garden Telescope was created by Russell Porter, considered one of the founding fathers of amateur astronomy and telescope-making, in the 1920s—and while one of the rare originals sits in the Smithsonian, Telescopes of Vermont is recreating the sculpture-like piece with hand-finished cast bronze. Made in the United States with upgraded modern optics, it sends gazers higher up than they ever could have imagined.
