A tool used to make dim objects look brighter and smaller objects look larger.
In radio astronomy, a term that may be used to mean either the physical structure of a single antenna, or an entire instrument (which may include multiple antennas, their electronics and on-line computers). The sense is usually apparent from the context.
These gadgets can be found in several Ages. Sometimes only to look and see, sometimes they are connected to other devices and have some definite purpose.
A device that collects and magnifies light.
Instrument used to capture as many photons as possible from a given region of the sky and concentrate them into a focused beam for analysis.
An optical instrument used in viewing distant objects. A telescope assists the eye chiefly in two ways; first, by enlarging the visual angle under which a distant object is seen, and thus magnifying that object; and, secondly, by collecting, and conveying to the eye, a larger beam of light than would enter the naked organ, thus rendering objects distinct and visible which would otherwise be indistinct and or invisible.

a very small instrument, but it helps people see stupendous realities in the sky
a usually tubular optical instrument for viewing distant objects by means of the refraction of light rays through a lens of reflection that is a concave mirror a tube that contains a mirror (or mirrors) that help magnify an object that is far away.
A devise that uses lenses or mirrors to enlarge images of distant objects. Astronomers use telescopes to study planets and stars.
An instrument designed to gather and focus electromagnetic radiation (light) to study celestial objects and events.
an instrument that makes distant objects appear closer and larger.
A device used to collect and focus electromagnetic radiation, commonly visible light.
Instrument used to focus electromagnetic radiation ( light, X-rays...) into an image.
an optical instrument shaped like a tube for making distant objects appear bigger and nearer
A tool for gathering and focusing electromagnetic radiation (NOT just visible light). This can be done with lenses, mirrors or gratings.
An instrument for collecting and examining electromagnetic radiation, especially an arrangement of lenses or mirrors or both that gathers visible light, permitting direct observation or photographic recording of distant object.
An instrument used to view the inside of the urine canal.
a tubed instrument used to brighten and magnify the view of astronomical objects (telescopes gather more light than the eye)
An instrument used to collect large amounts of light from far away objects and increase their visibility to the naked eye. Telescopes can also enlarge objects that are relatively close to the Earth or on the Earth.
An instrument used by astronomers to explore space. They can be designed to detect light, radio or any other waves of the spectrum and can be built by professionals or amateurs.
a system of lenses or mirrors that are used to see distant objects.
Any of various devices, sometimes made with an arrangement of lenses, mirrors, or both, used to detect and observe distant objects by their emission, transmission, reflection, or other interaction with invisible radiation. ULTRAVIOLET RAYS Invisible electromagnetic radiation which is comprised of very short wavelengths. Human beings get a sunburn from the ultraviolet rays emitted by the Sun.
Instrument to focus, collect and detect the light (or electromagnetic radiation in general) from astronomical objects. What instruments do astronomers use to find black holes
A device used in astronomy to see distant objects. Most telescopes use lenses and mirrors to magnify light coming from phenomena deep in space. This makes the objects look bigger and closer. Newer telescopes, however, are using radio waves, infrared light, laser, and radar technologies.
An optical instrument that gathers and focuses light into a camera, CCD, spectrograph, or an astronomer's eye. Two major types of telescopes dominate astronomy: reflectors and refractors.
device used to gather and focus electromagnetic radiation. A telescope extends the power of human vision by making objects brighter, sharper, and larger, as well as, imaging objects in wavelengths that are not detectable by the human eye.
An optical instrument consisting of two lenses (objective lens and ocular lens) used to magnify the apparent size of viewed objects.
A telescope is a device that makes faraway objects appear closer and larger, allowing us to see distant objects in space. The first refracting telescope was invented by Hans Lippershey in 1608. Early telescopes used glass lenses and/or mirrors to detect visible light. Later telescopes gathered electromagnetic radiation from the entire spectrum, from radio waves to gamma rays.
An instrument used to observe distant objects by collecting and focusing their electromagnetic radiation. Telescopes are usually designed to collect light in a specific wavelength range. Examples include optical telescopes that observe visible light and radio telescopes that detect radio waves.
A device which magnifies an object it is focused on. This is used a lot to observe celestial objects in space.
A telescope (from the Greek tele = 'far' and skopein = 'to look or see'; teleskopos = 'far-seeing') is an instrument designed for the observation of remote objects. The term usually refers to optical telescopes, but there are telescopes for most of the spectrum of electromagnetic radiation and for other signal types.
