Joan Roget

Joan Roget was born in Girona at the sixteenth century. Recent studies suggest that could have a crucial role in the invention of the telescope.Generally credited with the invention of the telescope to Hans Lippershey, a German manufacturer of lenses, but recent research from the British Magazine “History Today”attributed the authorship to John Roget in 1590.
