: Hi, My name is racheem and me and a couple of my friends are in dire need of your help!

: Our physics class to build a terrestrial telescope as a final project. We don't know where to start.

: The object we have to view is 43 feet away. we must be able to read a 10 pt font from that distance. all we have to work with

: is a drawer full of concave and convex lenses.

: HEP US PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rasheem: Robert May gave you some pretty good advice. I think that you may find an opening to a wonderful hobby, and possibly a profession, if you do the work yourself. I have built telescopes myself, and I will suggest that you visit your local public library, or perhaps even your school library, and look in the astronomy section. You will find plenty of information there, and you wil be proud of yourself for a completing the job as your teacher intended for you to.
