Seeing and amazement: From the distorting mirror to the "microscopy theatre" classical optics cause exciting effects and surprising phenomena over and over again.

And how the improvement of instruments like telescopes or microscopes opened whole new worlds to us. (Graphic design: Thöner von Wolffersdorff)
