Not much, both believed in heliocentrism. That planets revolve around the sun and not everything around the earth, which was the belief that many including the Catholic Church insisted on. Copernicus believed they travelled in circles, and later thanks to Kepler we know they are eliptical. Galileo never accepted this.
