Types of telescopes
There are three basic types of telescopes. Refractors are telescopes with a lens that is positioned at the front of the tube. It is among the most popular ones as it is very easy to use and maintain. Reflector telescopes collect light by using a mirror positioned at the rear end of the main tube. While using a reflector telescope, you will need to adjust the optical alignment, which is known as collimation. This is the least expensive type of telescope.
A compound telescope uses a combination of lenses and mirrors to magnify objects. This type is relatively lightweight in comparison to the other telescopes. Computerised telescopes come with a GoTo function which is designed to automatically locate the object in space.
Telescopes with tripods allow you to click both motion and still pictures, preventing the camera from moving.
