How to Calculate Power: The magnification, or power, at which a telescope is operating is a function of the focal length of the telescope's main (objective) lens (or primary mirror) and the focal length of the eyepiece employed. The focal length of the objective lens is the distance between the lens and the point at which it brings light rays to a focus; this focal length (in .   Powering your telescope Presented by: Robert Dalby All products available at: Produced by DB Video Services for Astronomy and Nature TV.

More Telescope Power by Gregory L. Matloff Download PDF EPUB FB2

The theoretical limit of useful magnification for a telescope is 50 or 60 times the telescope's aperture in inches, or two times the aperture in millimeters. So, for a 60mm refractor, the maximum useful power is x (i.e., times the magnification of the naked eye).

Higher magnification is pointless, because the image seen in the eyepiece. More Telescope Power: All New Activities and Projects for Young Astronomers [Matloff, Gregory L.] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers.

It also describes the nature of light in detail, without having the disadvantages of a textbook on physics."Charles Hughes, Twenty-first Century Science and TechnologyReviews: 9. A inch refracting telescope, for example, should never use more than power magnification (the general rule of thumb is power per inch of aperture).

In fact, for such a telescope, the.

The Orion GoScope III 70mm Refractor Travel Telescope is designed to pack up and go whenever you hit the road, the trail, or the air.

It excels for daytime birding, nature study, and scenic long-distance viewing, and will take you way beyond the Earth's horizon after sunset for some casual nighttime stargazing and Moon-watching. The book also includes a series of blank observation logs for you to record your own observations.

While written with the beginner in mind, the Orion Telescope Observer's Guide is also a must-have guide for more experienced amateur astronomers who want to learn more about observing the many wonders of the night sky with a telescope.

Orion's telescope and astrophotography accessories will enhance your telescope enjoyment without breaking the bank. Expand your viewing experience with accessories ranging from moon filters to power-boosting Barlow lenses to advanced computerized telescope mounts.

Capture breathtaking photos with our affordable astrophotography cameras. Read the included Orion Telescope Observer's Guide book to learn how to locate and observe over sixty interesting objects to explore in the telescope. Use the Star Target Planisphere to see what constellations and objects will be visible on any day of the year.

You get more power and aperture, and with the fully coated achromatic optics the. Low power, in fact, makes a telescope much more convenient to handle, and if your telescope mount or tripod is a bit shaky, as least lower powers will not magnify "the shakes" as much.

After 30 years of service, the Hubble Telescope has peaked in terms of how far back into the universe it can observe. Now it's time for the James Webb Space Telescope to discover the stars. You can get to more targets per session with a computer-guided telescope than with a manual rig, and this one is especially friendly and easy to operate.

Best Telescope for Hobbyists (Image credit Author: David Sky Brody. The petite SpaceProbe II 76mm Altazimuth Reflector Telescope is a great choice for anyone who is curious about space and the stars. The telescope's 3" aperture (or diameter) gathers a good amount of light from the night sky for impressively bright and detailed views of celestial wonders.

The 25mm eyepiece will yield 28x power magnification in the SpaceProbe II 76mm while the 10mm eyepiece boosts the magnification up to 70x power for closer looks. These " barrel eyepieces are better and more versatile than smaller" eyepieces you might find with department store telescopes.

To determine power, divide the focal length of the telescope (in mm) by the focal length of the eyepiece (in mm). By exchanging an eyepiece of one focal length for another, you can increase or decrease the power of the telescope.

For example, a 20 mm eyepiece used on a mm focal-length telescope would yield a power of 50x (/20 = 50). Amateur Telescope Making, edited by Stephen J. Tonkin. In terms of approach and contents, this book has more in common with the Ingalls ATM series or The Best of ATMJ than the other single-volume books in this reveiw.

Description Discover the power of your telescope as you explore the vast reaches of the universe.For those with a more than casual approach to their telescopes, this book will become in the widest sense, a benchmark in astronomical telescope testing literature.

Most importantly, it will give some weight to increasing the quality assurance standards of commercial telescopes, from the viewpoint of a better informed user.
