One of the projects I would like to do at some point is to create a Galileo style telescope.  The main problem is finding lens grinding kits.  They used to be available but seem to no longer be out there.  I will likely need to simply buy premade lenses.  There are a number of simple kits available so getting lenses will be doable as well as simplistic telescopes.  The trick will be figuring out how to build a more properly medieval recreation of the actual telescope.  Or at least a reasonable facsimile.

Possible material for a class on Galileo and his telescope.
