Abstract: Fabrication and use of optical telescopes for astronomical observations in India have been reviewed. Evolution of telescopes, their optics, mounting and drive system leading to large aperture instruments of today has been described. Limitations of ground-based observations in spectral coverage and degradation of images have been discussed. The article describes all existing telescope installations in India and various efforts made in the country in fabrication of telescopes for astronomical use. A brief account of the project by which the 2.34 metre telescope was constructed is given. Some of the proposals for future telescopes are mentioned.
