Thanks. The next one is finished (more or less) and I'm thinking about what I'll write about for the one after that.

I agree with Bel - this is a fascinating read, particularly for non-astronomers like me. I now begin to understand what all the fuss is about.

Hi Gnomon,

I also enjoyed reading your article smiley - magic. I have always wanted to learn a bit more about telescopes and how they work, but never got around to doing so smiley - sadface.

Now I can follow your article and learn new things smiley - ok. I brought a telescope some years ago but never worked out how it worked. I haven't got it now, just a strong pair of binoculars.

All the best.

A good pair of binoculars is invaluable in looking at the stars - 7 x 50 are the best. The purpose is not to make things bigger but to make them brighter. The 7 x 50 has the biggest improvement in brightness of any of the normally available models.
