In this project, the literature survey of history of astronomy, celestial bodies and various types of telescope has been done. For designing astronomical reflecting telescope, firstly the mirror has been grinded and Sagitta formed is being measured. After that, the focal length (=97.62 inch) and magnification (= 99.18) has been calculated. Then, the polishing of the mirror has been done for making the smooth surface.
