There are two major astronomical observations of Galileo that supported a heliocentric cosmology. Galileo observed that Jupiter had moons orbiting it and that Venus had phases like the Moon.

Which famous scientist first used a telescope for astronomical observations?

Galileo


Who invented the telescope and developed a heliocentric view of the universe?

I suspect the answer you're looking for is Galileo Galilei. It just has two problems: Galileo didn't "invent the telescope", nor did he "develop a heliocentric view of the universe." The telescope was invented in the Netherlands; Galileo simply improved on it and was probably the first to apply it to astronomical observations instead of just looking for distant ships. Also, Copernicus is (properly) credited with the heliocentric view; Galileo's observations supported this, but he didn't come up with it.

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.

What observations did Galileo make that reinforced the heliocentric model?

Galileo observed the orbital pattern of Venus and its phases, which reinforced the heliocentric model. He was the first to do so because he invented a telescope that allowed him to view the planets.


Why did catholic church leaders oppose Galileo's sun centered model of the universe?

The Bible is written from an implicitly geocentric viewpoint, so if we take the Bible as the ultimate authority on everything, then it would be wrong to come to other conclusions such as the heliocentric theory, merely by observing the way the universe actually is. Incidentally, although Galileo did support the heliocentric theory, it was originally proposed by Copernicus. It isn't Galileo's model. Galileo did contribute to this theory with his astronomical observations, however.
