ASTR 1101-001 Spring 2008 Joel E. Tohline, Alumni Professor 247 Nicholson Hall [Slides from Lecture22]

Slide 2

Telescopes (Chapter 6) Traditional ground-based optical telescopes Refracting (light goes through a perspective) Reflecting (light bobs off a curved mirror) Telescopes for wavelengths outside the noticeable part of the EM range Ground-based radio telescopes and telescope exhibits Space-based satellite telescopes SIRTF (infrared) Hubble Space Telescope (obvious and bright) Chandra & XMM (x-beam) GRO ( g - beam)

Slide 3

Telescopes (Chapter 6) Traditional ground-based optical telescopes Refracting (light goes through an arched lens) Reflecting (light bobs off a sunken mirror) Telescopes for wavelengths outside the unmistakable part of the EM range Ground-based radio telescopes and telescope clusters Space-based satellite telescopes SIRTF (infrared) Hubble Space Telescope (obvious and bright) Chandra & XMM (x-beam) GRO ( g - beam)

Slide 4

Landolt Astronomical Observatory 11.5-inch refracting telescope Location: top of Nicholson Hall http://www.phys.lsu.edu/landoltobservatory/index.html

Slide 5

Refracting Telescope: "How it works"

Slide 6

Telescopes (Chapter 6) NOTE: A substantial lens is profitable on the grounds that it can gather all the more light in a given measure of time. The gathering range goes as the square of the sweep of the lens. Conventional ground-based optical telescopes Refracting (light goes through a viewpoint) Reflecting (light bobs off an inward reflect) Telescopes for wavelengths outside the noticeable part of the EM range Ground-based radio telescopes and telescope exhibits Space-based satellite telescopes SIRTF (infrared) Hubble Space Telescope (unmistakable and bright) Chandra & XMM (x-beam) GRO ( g - beam)

Slide 8

40-inch Refractor at Yerkes Observatory (close Chicago, IL)

Slide 10

Telescopes (Chapter 6) Traditional ground-based optical telescopes Refracting (light goes through an arched lens) Reflecting (light ricochets off a curved mirror) Telescopes for wavelengths outside the obvious part of the EM range Ground-based radio telescopes and telescope clusters Space-based satellite telescopes SIRTF (infrared) Hubble Space Telescope (noticeable and bright) Chandra & XMM (x-beam) GRO ( g - beam)

Slide 11

Highland Road Park Observatory (BREC stop only south of Siegen Lane) 20-inch breadth reflecting telescope http://www.bro.lsu.edu

Slide 16

Telescopes (Chapter 6) NOTE: A substantial mirror is worthwhile on the grounds that it can gather all the more light in a given measure of time. The gathering territory goes as the square of the span of the mirror. Conventional ground-based optical telescopes Refracting (light goes through a perspective) Reflecting (light ricochets off an inward reflect) Telescopes for wavelengths outside the obvious part of the EM range Ground-based radio telescopes and telescope clusters Space-based satellite telescopes SIRTF (infrared) Hubble Space Telescope (unmistakable and bright) Chandra & XMM (x-beam) GRO ( g - beam)

Slide 18

Reflecting Telescope: "Gemini North" in Hawaii Primary mirror has a distance across of 8.1 meters Secondary mirror has a breadth of 1.0 meter Hole in essential through which light goes to come to the Cassegrain center

Slide 19

Summit of Mauna Kea (Hawaii)

Slide 20

Hubble Space Telescope Operated by: Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, Maryland www.stsci.edu

Slide 21

Hubble Space Telescope Operated by: Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, Maryland www.stsci.edu NOTE: Hubble does not have an especially extensive essential mirror. Hubble pictures are not "fluffy," in any case, since its perspective of articles is unencumbered by environmental turbulence.
