Galileo's discoveries showed faults with the old Ptolemaic theory, which had the Sun at the centre. So he was right to publicise these but not to proclaim that the heliocentric theory of Copernicus was correct.

Tycho produced a geocentric theory that explained the phenomena discovered by Galileo, which were (mainly) the full range of phases dislplayed by Venus.

Eventually Johannes Kepler brought out a new heliocentric theory with novel elliptical orbits for the planets. It was later backed up by Newton's theoretical discoveries and by later measurements, and it is the model used and accepted today.

How did data gathered using Galileo's early telescope support the helioentric model?

None of it but Galileo's discoveries with the telescope were very important in raising questions about the old Ptolemaic theory, which was geocentric. However Galileo's discovery of Venus's phases was not a proof of the heliocentric principle because Tycho produced a geocentric model that explained Venus's phases.


How did Galileo observations support the idea of the heliocentric system?

Galileo's observations with his telescope supported the concept of heliocentricism. He noted that the satellites of Jupiter and Venus, based on their range of phases, did not match geocentricism supported by Ptolemy. He noted that based on these findings, that the Heliocentric theory was correct.
