Yes they can. When the person is deceased their estate goes to the Executor (male) or Executrix (female) and they make sure all personal/property taxes and creditors are paid off. You can go into any book store and get a "Probate Book" or even go on the internet and get the forms. Of course when you take the Probate forms in they almost always fail you the first time (cash cow method) but, be patient, the second time around you'll get through OK. It can take 8 months to a year for the Probate to go through. The Executor/Executrix can pay electric bills, phone bills, etc. (every monthly bill), but the bulk of the Estate has to go to probate. If the debt is worth more than the total Estate then the creditors are out of luck! Marcy

What is meant by collecting area. How does it affect the ability to see faint objects?

Collecting area is the area over which a telescope focuses and collects light from a particular object. Generally this is the size of the opening of the telescope. The greater the collecting area, the more photons per second the telescope can collect from the area of interest. Having more collecting area reduces the amount of time for any exposure to be made. For really faint objects having more collecting area can bring the object above the observing threshold of the equipment you have, making it possible to detect it.
