Some telescopes are manufactured exclusively for the observatories are designed to observe celestial bodies for scientific purposes. Amateur astronomers telescopes themselves become simpler. Range of observation devices much smaller in size, many of them are comparable with binoculars. Such telescopes, of course, are not able to fix the valuable changes in terms of science, but they, nevertheless, will tell you more about the night sky than normal to the naked eye. If you are interested in astronomy, like watching the heavenly bodies, want to learn more about our neighbors – such as the Moon, Mars or Venus – but not yet ready to spend on amateur research serious physical facilities, you have a way out.
Mount the telescope with his own hands! Make a telescope at home, quite simply, if you know how it works and the device. There are two types of telescopes: reflector and refractor. Self-creation of the reflector is quite possible, however, is quite a laborious process. Therefore, we will focus on your refractor. We need two magnifying glass and two rigid tubes of different diameters. Handsets can wring out of ordinary cardboard or drawing paper.
One of the lenses will be placed at the very end of the telescope, its diameter should be about 70 mm., The power – 1 diopter. This is – so-called lens. The lens will collect images of objects that we need in the sky. The second lens – it may be common magnifying glass of magnifying glass – will be our eyepiece – it will zoom in up to We need size. Its diameter should be 30 mm. The eyepiece is placed directly before the eye of the observer, followed by the lens. Smaller diameter pipe is inserted into the pipe of larger diameter. In the lower part of the eyepiece in large – the lens. Focusing the image is provided by changing the distance between the two lenses. This simple device will have sufficient magnification to ensure that you have the opportunity to more closely watch the closest planets, solar system, as well as several deepen their knowledge about the sky.
