Class subject: Telescope Structure.

A telescope consists of several key components, each with a specific function that contributes to the overall operation and effectiveness of the instrument. Here are the functions of the optical telescope parts:
  • 1. Objective Lens/Mirror
    Refracting Telescope: Uses an objective lens to gather and focus light.
    Reflecting Telescope: Uses a primary mirror to gather and focus light.
  • 2. Eyepiece
    The eyepiece is a lens or a group of lenses located at the viewing end of the telescope. It magnifies the image produced by the objective lens or mirror.
  • 3. Tube
    The tube is the main body of the telescope that holds the optical components in alignment. It helps to keep out stray light and dust.
  • 4. Mount
    The mount supports the telescope and allows it to be pointed at different parts of the sky. There are two main types:
    Altazimuth Mount: Moves in altitude (up and down) and azimuth (side to side).
    Equatorial Mount: Aligns with the Earth's axis, allowing for easier tracking of celestial objects as they move across the sky.
  • 5. Focuser
    The focuser is a mechanism that moves the eyepiece or camera closer to or farther from the objective lens or mirror to achieve a sharp image.
  • 6. Finderscope
    A smaller, low-power telescope mounted on the main telescope, used to help locate and center objects in the main telescope's field of view.
  • 7. Diagonal Mirror/Prism
    In some telescopes, especially refractors and catadioptrics, a diagonal mirror or prism redirects the light path to make viewing more comfortable, often at a 90-degree angle.
  • 8. Secondary Mirror (for Reflecting Telescopes)
    Reflecting telescopes typically have a secondary mirror that reflects the light gathered by the primary mirror towards the eyepiece or camera.
  • 9. Focuser Knob
    This knob allows precise adjustments of the focuser to bring the viewed object into sharp focus.
  • 10. Tripod/Pier
    A stable platform that supports the mount and telescope, reducing vibrations and providing a steady view.
  • 11. Counterweights (for Equatorial Mounts)
    These are used to balance the telescope on the mount, ensuring smooth and controlled movement.
  • 12. Motor Drives (for Computerized Telescopes)
    These motors, often controlled by a computerized system, automatically move the telescope to track celestial objects as they move across the sky.
  • 13. Aperture
    The diameter of the objective lens or primary mirror, which determines the amount of light the telescope can collect and thus its ability to resolve fine details.
  • 14. Baffle System
    Internal structures within the tube designed to reduce stray light and improve image contrast by blocking unwanted light paths.
  • 15. Dew Shield
    A shield that extends from the front of the telescope tube to prevent dew from forming on the objective lens or corrector plate.
