    Default Telescope Documentaries?



    Just thought I'd ask if anyone here knew of some good documentaries on telescopes. anything from, history of telescope design, to modern amateur astronomy.

    NOVA, the U.S. PBS station has 'Hunting the Edge of Space', and 'Seeing Stars'.

    The Discovery Channel has a good one, covering the Discovery Channel Telescope (DCT) at Lowell Observatory.

    There are many books, for example 'The Perfect Machine'.
