31338 Lipperhey           Discovered 1998 Apr. 25 by E. W. Elst at the European Southern Observatory.
Dutch lensmaker Hans Lipperhey (1570-1619), known for his invention of Dutch perspective glass, was the first to design and seek a patent for a practical telescope, which he made available for general use in 1608.
