History

The constellation was introduced in 1752 by the French Lacaille under the original name Tubus Astronomicus in honor of the most important astronomical observation instrument. In the star atlas Uranometria Sive Astrorum Descriptio, which Johann Ehlert Bode drew and published at the beginning of the last century, the constellation Telescopium is realistically drawn.
