Reflecting Telescopes: All You Need to Know

Reflecting Telescopes: An Overview The history of telescopy is fascinating. The first telescope was invented in the 17th century. Note that it was spectacle-maker Hans Lippershey, who was credited as the inventor of the first refractor telescope and Galileo Galilei, who pointed the telescope towards the skies. Early refractor telescopes, however, suffered from chromatic aberration, so in 1668 Sir Isaac

Portable and Handheld Telescopes: All You Need to Know

Portable and Handheld Telescopes: Introduction Telescopes have undergone significant transformations since the 17th century - or when the first refractor telescope was invented. Note that spectacle-maker Hans Lippershey was credited as the inventor of the telescope and Galileo Galilei as the scientist who pointed the telescope towards the skies. In 1668 Sir Isaac Newton created the so-called Newtonian reflecting telescope

Magnifiers: All You Need to Know

I. Magnifiers: Introduction Magnifiers are defined as instruments that enlarge the size of images. Interestingly, the phenomenon of magnification was highly valued in the ancient world. In Ancient Egypt and Rome, for instance, people used crystals and gemstones to view small objects or images; the magnifying glass was also used to ignite paper. Note that the first magnifier used as

Catadioptric Telescopes: A Complete Guide

Catadioptric Telescopes: Introduction While both reflecting and refracting models continued improving over the years, advancements in lens technology outside the field of telescopy led to the development of the catadioptric telescope - a combination of refracting (lenses) and reflecting (mirrors) optics. To provide an example, in 1820, physicist Augustin-Jean Fresnel developed the prominent catadioptric lighthouse reflector, in 1859 scientist Leon

Institution- or Mentor-Based Research – Which One is Better?

A good research undertaking always has a comprehensive plan. A serious researcher does take time to draw up a proposal to show to the approving authorities the basic research purpose that is self-explanatory yet comprehensive. As a matter of interest, new and early-stage investigators need to form a detailed plan of action to be able to elaborate on the following:

Human Mirror Box: A Rehabilitative Tool to Retrain the Human Brain

Human Mirror Box and Mirror Box Therapy: Introduction A human mirror box is a rehabilitative tool used to eliminate body representations deficits and restore various pathological conditions. As the name suggests, a mirror box is a box with a mirror placed in the center (along the midsagittal plane of the patient’s body), which creates optical illusions that help the brain

Binoculars: A Complete Guide

Binoculars: Introduction Binoculars are versatile tools that provide enlarged images of distant objects. Note that binoculars are made of two telescopes mounted on a single frame, which allows the use of both eyes. The design of binoculars has evolved significantly over the centuries. Although the phenomenon of magnification was highly valued in the ancient world, the first reflector telescope was
