A telescopes making asteroid can start robotically forming many telescopes, some to be sent out into various orbits. Astronomers would love having available multiple new good wide telescopes to send them uninterrupted great views, at virtually zero cost to them, all to study well many universe different things.
A computer will monitor the position of what a telescope is to be aimed at. This will let it smoothly finely tilt it to keep viewing something nearby in our Solar system.
Being off Earth, there's no atmospheric absorption of any wavelengths. Thus short wavelength ultraviolet won't be obstructed. So viewing a thus wider spectrum will allow fuller studies of light's details reaching here from stars and maybe even some of their biggest closest (brightest) planets.
To keep watch on a planet here, send a pair of telescopes to orbit between it and Sol once each orbit of the planet, to stay there balanced between Sol and the planet. This will be at its Lagrangian L1 stability point, where the planet's gravity cancels enough of Solar gravity to result there in the same orbit "year" as the planet. These have "Hill" sphere radii L1 distances (in 1,000,000km) in before the planets which are % of their orbit radii (also shown here in 1,000,000km): Mercury .477=.822% of 58, Venus 1.010=.935% of 108, Earth 1.496=1.004% of 149, Mars 1.085=.476% of 228, Jupiter 53.118 =6.828% of 778, Saturn 65.112=4.566% of 1426, Uranus 70.077=2.443% of 2869, Neptune
115.398=2.567% of 4495.
With the 2 telescopes, include sunlight to electricity conversion film disks, to gain energy such as for encoding received image views to be sent to astronomers etc. To keep the orbit at L1, and to have some wanted part of the turning daylit planet face in good view by one of the telescopes good for more magnified closer wanted special views, adjust positions & tilt angles of the Solar energy converting disk films, to usefully exploit the very weak light pressure on them to refine the aimed direction. (Also the disks will feel some force when halting some virtually vacuum hot gas jet & ion streams from Sol.)
A cluster of galaxies may have many thousands. Superclusters contain tens of thousands of galaxies. Thus besides observing planets and stars, ever more new almost free robotically produced telescopes gradually will permit also simultaneously keeping watch on ever more and more interesting galaxies
