Example text

When buying a small telescope, do not believe the claims of the manufacturer that this instrument will magnify up to 400 or 500 times. Such claims are almost always fraudulent, as at such magnifications only a blur will be observed through the eyepiece. As a general rule, a telescope is performing at its optimum when it has a magnification of 25× per 25 mm of aperture. Therefore, if you have a 100-mm telescope, the maximum it should be able to magnify, with resultant clear detail, is 100×. Following this advice will forestall any frustration you will ultimately experience if you have the misfortune to be sucked in by the advertiser’s gimmicks.

Mountain Ranges The mountain ranges of the Moon are mostly the borders of maria. Mare Imbrium, for instance, has for ramparts the Apennine, Caucasus, Alps, Jura and Carpathian mountains. All were thrown up like the walls of an enormous crater when the impact that caused the Imbrium basin occurred. Observers of the seventeenth and Faults and Domes 35 eighteenth centuries named the features after mountain areas familiar to Europeans. Much of their original nomenclature has been eradicated by time and bureaucracy, but some still remain intact.

Some astronomers report success in its use on binary star systems with red components such as Antares and α Herculis as the contrast enables the observer to split the two components well. The No. 80A filter has a 30 % light transmission and so should be used with a larger aperture if possible, though this caveat does not apply to lunar observations. It also acts as a color conversion filter, enhancing wavelengths around 500 nm. No. 38A Dark Blue Again, a good filter to use on a planet such as Jupiter because it blocks red and orange wavelengths in such features as the belts and in the Great Red Spot.
