Telescopes

Parent Category: Astronomy
A telescope is a device used to form images of distant objects. There are two kinds: an optical telescope uses lenses and is known as a refracting telescope or a refractor, and a reflecting telescope, which uses a mirror and is known as a reflecting telescope or a reflector. The earliest telescope was a refractor built by the Dutch eyeglass maker Hans Lippershey. This category is for questions related to telescopes, including using them to view distant planets and objects in space.

The Pano mirror lens is a great tool for taking 360° panoramic photos with the minimum of fuss: 1- Mount the Pano Pro unit and your camera onto your tripod, pointing vertically upwards, using the supplied quick-release adapter kit. 2- Focus the camera on the mirror and take one shot. 3-Use the...
Refracting is more of a direct look at the star, but it doesn'tshow it very closely. Reflecting uses mirror's and can most of thetime give you a better view than a refracting. I own both and in myopinion reflecting works better.
a telescopes vision can be blocked by and astroid or by the clouds.you won't get a clear view when all the dust blocks a lot since itis zooming a lot. the advantages are its also like a periscope witha mirror which give you a clear view of things.
Optical telescopes cannot be used in cloudy weather, unless theyare space based (far above the clouds). Infrared telescopes canpeer through clouds, as can radiotelescopes.
to take photographs of very distant galaxies, and show data of themto NASA. It is used, because there is too much light pollution in alot of places on Earth, making it hard to use a telescope, but inspace there is no light pollution (therefore, it can see thegalaxies that we can't see on Earth).
it allows you to see objects that are far away, but go to another website for more information because i wrote this and i was looking for this question! oh well
You have to use the wrench in your old spy phone to get a tool click on the red blinking light.
The reflecting telescope was invented by Sir Isaac Newton in theearly 1600s. This was before there was a patent office, and nopatent exists on the reflecting telescope as such. The Dobsonianmount is a popular alt azimuth mount for reflecting telescopes,created by John Dobson in the 1960s. He...
It is so called the eye in the sky as man cansee far, far into space about 900 times compared from earth.
There are a variety of styles of reflecting telescopes, but I willdescribe one of the easier and more common designs. The primarymirror is curved concave. It is created typically out of thickglass that has been ground and polished to remarkable precision,which is then coated with reflective material...
The Hubble telescope is in orbit around the Earth.
I'm not positive, but it was in the 1600's so i'd probably guess wood and glass. it might have been some kind of metal though.
It allows us to collect more light than we can with our eyes, thus gathering information we could not otherwise gather.
A telescope lets you see far away objects. A satellite is something that orbits something else. A satellite telescope is a big telescope is space that orbits a planet, usually to take photo's of the universe
Light goes through the lens but not through the mirror. -- So any imperfection inside the lens can affect the behavior of the light, but an imperfection inside the mirror can't. -- So the lens must be made of the finest, purest material through and through, but the mirror can be made of any...
The Hubble telescope can take extremely detailed pictures usingmirrors in space.
Telescopes were invented so they can discover the universe and by that i mean to look at the stars or anything in space and figure out what they are or what they do. =D -yO WeLCoMe!!!!!
The objective lens focuses the light entering a refracting telescope.
An x-ray telescope. They are far too small to be seen optically.
A telescope collects electromagnetic radiation to view objects faraway. A telescope is a device used to observe remote objects andused in the study of astronomy. The first telescope was made in the1600's..
Radio telescopes allow us to see things that can't be seen in visible light. And vice versa, optical telescopes can show things that are not visible in radio telescopes. So, the information from both kinds of telescopes really complements each other.\n Radio telescopes allow us to see things that...
Why do you thick astronomers use reflecting telescopes rather than refracting telescopes?.
I think the Hubble Space Telescopes was made by the NASA but they named the Hubble Space Telescope was named by Edwid Hubble
Galileo just used the refracting telescope.
Try and be more specific. There are lots of telescopes in poptropica, like on Big Nate, Shrink Ray, and Skullduggery.
The Hubble Space Telescope is the greatest telescope ever built. It's important because it takes pictures far out into the galaxy so astronomers can study them. BTW I want to be an astronomer.
veggie villain go to the lighthouse pick up the can that is used for the worms go to the HQ use the put it into the water fire ice thing use water then ice a piece of ice will fall pick it up give it to the guy trying to fix the telescope and he will give u the spare lens and u can use it to fix the...
The light stays in the same medium when it is reflected, while it changes mediums when it is refracted.
it means forty times what the human eye can see
Yes, that is correct. A greater main mirror, or main lens, will gather more light. Yes, that is correct. A greater main mirror, or main lens, will gather more light. Yes, that is correct. A greater main mirror, or main lens, will gather more light. Yes, that is correct. A greater main mirror, or...
Early Mars images showed a face-like feature and five-sided pyramid. The Pyramid is perfectly symetrical and its edges point at other figures in Cydionia.
Yes, it is very bright. Keep trying and you will see it. You have to look in the right place at the right time. See link below:
The "resolving power" of a telescope is a measure of the ability of a telescope to distinguish between two separate objects that appear to be very close together in the sky.
well you click tools on your spy phone and get the wrench and attach it to the telescope and its fixed
The only problems currently faced in telescope technoogy are the physical limitations of grinding lenses and machining the tubes and parts; you can only get so accurate, even with electron microscopes to help, before it is impossible to get better.
Mirrors, The Hubble space telescope first had one big shaped mirror, which made the images blury so they sent up astronaughts and replaced it with 4 8.2 meter flat mirrors making the pictures more clear!
"Optical" means that it works with visible light. This is to distinguish from telescopes that use other types of radiation, such as infrared, X-rays, or radio waves.\n
get a clearer piece of glass put them in space so there is no air particles from the atmopsophere distorting it basically a clearer piece
This was made in some year.
Objects have been observed with distances estimated to be in the neighborhood of 13 billion light years.
Well, let's see. When I'm driving through a thunderstorm or a blizzard, I can't see a thing on the road ahead of me, but I can still listen to the radio just fine. So I'd say it's the radio telescope.
Telescopes and microscopes both enlarge objects so that more detail can be seen.
there were many people who wanted to see what naked eye could not. Galileo was the first person who developed a telescope powerful enough to see objects as distant as the planet saturn:)
A reflecting telescope is an optical telescope which uses a single or combination of curved mirrors that reflect light and form an image.
The nominal function of any telescope is to enlarge the image of a distant object and that is the same for reflecting or refracting or hybrid telescopes. That said, it is a better description of a telescope to say it is a light collector that brings into an image (on the eye or photo sensor of...
No, Tycho Brahe did, but Kepler just improved it and made it popular
-- Please go outside tonight. If the sky is cloudy, go back inside and forget the whole thing. If the sky is clear, stay outside, look up, and go on to the next step. -- If the moon happens to be up, look at the moon and remember kind of where it is. -- Also find one star that you think you...
The Hubble telescope was carried into orbit in April 1990 by the Space Shuttle Discovery.

No not really if you get technical it stincks.
Black holes,were theorized since the 1800's,it was predicted byEinstein's theory that they were really real.Since then this forcedastronomers to think such a thing is real,and yet they are,butthere very rare to find,so we don't really know what telescopediscovered a black hole.So we thing the Hubble...
Radio telescopes don't require a solid surfaced dish. The receiver can collect information on its own. When you link several together, the receivers work together, therefore acting as a single large one covering a larger area.
Prisms help magnify things that you are looking at through the telescope.
During our camping trip, my dad brought a telescope to study the stars in the sky.
No,they are invisible. They are usually detected by how they influence other objects like stars around them.
There are 2 key pieces of electronics aboard HST that if they were to fail would essentially end HST's service life: Fine Guidance Sensors (FGS) are arguably the single most key pieces of electronics on HST. The FGS's are what point HST and keep it locked in position while observations are...
so that optical astronomers can get a better view of the celestial objects. because as higher you ride from the ground the thinner the atmosphere layer, that are mainly responsible for the jiggling & distortion of the images taken by the optical telescopes..
It got its name by the Greek word (tele='far' and skopein = 'too look or see'; teleskopos= 'far seeing'.)
aliens are still uncorfirmed to date but however in 1961 astronmer frank drake invented a formulae to calculate how many communicative civilzations are in the milky way his formulae follows: N=R* Fp ne Fl Fi Fc L N= 10x0.5x2x1x1x0.5x10000 N= 10000 communicative civilzations This is what drake...
The telescope was invented somewhere in the Netherlands. I know this because I personally have been researching the telescope for a project.
It is vital that the solar system is in a quiet part of the Milky Way because our odds of having collisions with other stars is extremely low...unlike the center of our galaxy.
They will pull it back to Earth. It will get burned up long before it hits the ground. The reason for doing this is because the HST is getting old and it would take too much time and money to fix it.
The most powerful telescope is the Hubble telescope, please note you did not ask where.
Increasing the distance between the two most widely separated radio telescopes has an enormous effect on resolution.
a reflecting telescope is bigger because it uses mirrors, not lenses, and mirrors r bigger! :)
Galilao mapped the moon and saw jupiters moona
There are 0.3048 metres in one foot. Therefore, rounded to two decimal places, 106 metres is equal to 106 / 0.3048 = 347.77 feet.
The advent of the Dobsonian telescope has made refracting telescopes less popular because the large mirrors of the reflectors gather so much more light for the same amount of money.
Visible light only occupies a small part of the electromagnetic spectrum. In the last 150 years people have discovered and put to use a large part of that spectrum. We use it to take x-rays, treat cancer, communicate with satellites, communicate with submarines, and for many other uses. A number of...
The questions seems incomplete so I will interpret it to be: which is better to observe with: an x-ray telescope or an infrared telescope. A telescope is a tool. Tools are designed to do a specific job. Humans eyes are able to see only part of the total light spectrum which physicist and...
No. The best place to see Orion from is on the equator ... that's where it spends the most hours above the horizon. Even there, on the 4th of July, Orion isn't completely risen until 6 AM, and it's completely set by 6 PM. So July seems like a particularly poor time to try and see Orion.
