You may think that telescope furniture is somehow related to telescopes or are telescope accessories. Actually, a lot of people seem to think that, and the misconception surfaces again and again across the Internet. But in actuality, Telescope Casual is a furniture company that designs and sells patio furniture! While the furniture is not related to astronomy telescopes at all, and while the furniture does not share the theme of telescopes, it does look quite comfortable and affordable.
Imagine, if you will, settling outside in your yard or your driveway or on your porch. You have your laptop set up with the coordinates you plan to view, and a nice cold drink, waiting on the table next to you. You’re settled in a very relaxing chair that is not only comfortable to sit in, but actually matches the rest of your home quite well. You didn’t spend a lot of money on your furniture, which allowed you to put the money you saved towards an actual telescope. That’s a very attractive picture, especially for people who spend a great deal of their free time outside, in the dark, and the cold, usually alone, watching the frigid distances of space. It’s all about comfort, because the more comfortable you are, the more likely you are to stay outside with your telescope, watching, monitoring, tracking and exploring the growing and changing universe.
Tasco telescopes are offered at many locations, including online, via catalogue, and at retail locations.
A telescope can be designed in a variety of ways, many based on Galileo’s original design, described in Starry Nights.
