What are some of the advantages and disadvantages of refracting telescopes versu

What are some of the advantages and disadvantages of refracting telescopes versus reflecting telescopes? Why are we “looking back in time” when we look at the night sky? (or anywhere for that matter) What does that tell you about what you may not see? What are the two main reasons that we have telescopes in… Continue reading What are some of the advantages and disadvantages of refracting telescopes versu
