Resolution Of A Telescope

Whenever we observe the moon or planets through a telescope, we are looking at an extended object. As we increase magnification under good conditions, we see far more detail.

In contrast, whenever we focus on a star, we're looking at a point source and regardless of how much we actually increase the magnification, it is so distant that will only get a point of light.


SkyMax Telescopes

These 'scopes' and a barlow lens are ideal for imaging lunar and planetary detail, they can also be used for deep sky work but will require a focal reducer. A drive will be required for imaging and is advisable for visual work.


The Hobby Of Astronomy

The Hobby of Astronomy is an intriguing life-time past time appreciated by many young kids,senior citizens, centenarians, and by individuals from all areas of life and from every part of the world.

You can view the heavens on an everyday basis or more serious foundation, embark on scientific study as well as marvel at the wonderment of our very existence.


Refracting Telescopes

The refractor is an optical system that makes use of a series of glass lenses, to refract or bend the light from a distant object, so that it can be focused to a point and then magnified by an eyepiece,it is often referred to as a Galilean refractor

This is the kind of instrument that the lay person normally thinks of when conjuring up a mental picture of a telescope.


Amateur Astrophotography

The whole concept of Amateur Astrophotography can be both an intriguing and rewarding activity for the beginner as well as the serious astronomer.

You can elect to use conventional 35mm, ccd, digital cameras and even web cams all of which can be used to take remarkably good images....


Where it warrants it we will have a feedback form covering each section, so you will be able to leave your comments, ideas, tips, images and thoughts on all aspects related to astronomy

Until Next Time, Keep Looking up..............


Have you any comments, ideas, stories, interesting images or feedback? I'm always interested to hear from new and seasoned amateur astronomers. Just reply to this e-zine.

See you next month!
