A Quick History of Galileo Telescope Makers:

We are 24 years young!

GTM was founded in 1990 by Nilesh Vayada, an astronomy enthusiast who is now a fullfledged ‘astropreneur’. At the start of his career as an astropreneur, Nilesh personally built telescopes for individuals based on their requirement. From 1998, GTM began large scale import of telescopes and telescope accessories to cater to the rising demand. The exponential growth in demand meant that it is no longer requiredctovbuild telescopes personally for every person. GTM’s earliest website in 1998 included a simple list of telescopes and accessories on During that time, most upcoming online portals included GTM on their sites. In 2003, GTM created its first online e-commerce portal, From 2009 onwards the website became interactive and knowledge-oriented. Today we are the only company in India that offers astronomy education alongside our telescope sales.
