I’ve seen a lot of different telescopes, but I’m always trying to find the best one for my needs. The NASA webb telescope, which I’m going to be using for my first telescope, is an incredible one that I’ve been looking forward to getting for a while. I was hoping to have it installed by the end of this month, but the wait hasn’t been as bad as I was hoping.
Im sure the telescope will be great, but my question is, will it work? My budget is tight currently, so Im not sure. Ive tried a couple different ones, and the first ones that Ive seen really look really close to perfect. Ive also seen some that were just a little off, but Im hoping that with a little tweaking it will be perfect. I am sure that Im going to get a lot of stares though.
The thing is that the focus of your telescope isn’t really about how sharp you can make it. It’s about how much light you can throw it at the stars. And that’s why the only way to really know if your telescope is really perfect is to put it to use. That’s why it matters so much to get that perfect focus.
The webb telescope is the latest addition to the nasa design kit. The telescope is shaped like a box, but has a circular lens instead of a cross-sectioned-rectangle. So it actually is rectangular, but in an oval shape. It has a 12″ diameter and is powered by an Arduino with an onboard camera. The lens is a fixed focus, so you can’t adjust it.
The telescope has a focal length of 50cm, which is pretty good for it’s intended purpose. The telescope is also good for use in conjunction with a laser rangefinder and a small camera (probably a mini-DLP-20). The telescope is not meant to be used in the field, but it would work with a field-stripper and a small camera.
There is some good news on the telescope. It has a small lens on the front to fix the focus to the eyepiece. That means you need to be careful with your distance when using the telescope. If you are really close you might be able to get it to focus on a point in the sky that is not the same as the focal point of the eyepiece.
This is really really good news because the telescope will allow you to see as far as you would at a distance of 100 feet. That’s the longest it will ever go, so that should be a really nice benefit. The downside is that it will still have some fudge at the top of its focal point, so you’ll have to be careful with your distance when using it.
The telescope is actually a very small telescope, so if you’re close enough to it it will still work just fine. But the focal point will be somewhere on the edge of the eyepiece, causing it to look a little fuzzy. Thats why it is best to use a telescope for longer distances. Its fudge factor will be minimal, but it is still a very useful tool.
I actually have a different perspective on the telescope than the Nasa guys. I see it as a tool that lets you examine a very large area at a very high resolution, and its focus is very close to the telescope itself. It will not be able to see the very distant stars like the Hubble, but it will allow you to see far in advance of seeing anything else in the sky.
That being said, I think that the fudge factor is pretty minimal. The view will be very narrow and there will be a lot of fudging to get it to the correct focus. But I have yet to find a telescope that will give me a view that rivals the Hubble, so it may be worth it.
