There’s a lot of controversy about what the right way to look at the sky is. In fact, it’s one of the biggest controversies of the scientific community and one of the biggest topics of debate in astronomy. On the one side, we have people who are really, really into astronomy, and are doing everything in their power to make sure that astronomers’ instruments are the best they can be.
The other side of the spectrum of astronomer views is that there are a lot of people who have their own telescopes and would love to have the same thing as astronomers and have their telescopes pointed in the same direction as the astronomers. There are a few reasons for this. One is that it gives the astronomers a way to know if their instruments are out of alignment, and another is that it provides a neat way to see those pesky stars that are so prominent in the night sky.
One of the best telescopes in the world is the telescope on the International Space Station. It’s not the most powerful of telescopes, but it’s got great resolution. It’s also got a lot of fun-looking retro-reflector mirror balls on the side. The International Space Station is also the home of two of my favorite telescopes. One is the Gemini Planetarium telescope that has a telescope and a wide-angle camera that you can actually control.
And last, but certainly not least, is the telescope on the ISS. It’s called the Maksutov telescope and it’s the first telescope in space to have a fully programmable C/A retro-reflector mirror. It’s capable of taking detailed images of the night sky. I love looking at it when it’s up there.
My telescope on the International Space Station is the Maksutov telescope – one of the most popular telescopes in the world. And it is upside down. It’s the first telescope in space to have a retro-reflector (retro-reflector is basically a mirror that’s reflective in one direction, but not in all directions). This is because the retro-reflector is reflective in all directions, but not in all directions.
The telescope has a retro-reflector. The retro-reflector is reflective not only in one direction, but in all directions. The mirror is reflective in only one direction. If I am to say that the telescope is upside down, then I have to look at the mirror and say, “yes”.
I’ve been looking through my telescope for a few days now and I have to say that it is upside down. I should have known I was right. The mirror is right. The telescope is to the right. My telescope is upside down. Everything is upside down.
The mirror is in the middle of the universe and the telescope is looking at the edge. The telescope is looking at the other mirror and the mirrored edge. Things are upside down in your view.
Well, that’s all good and well. I can’t help but think that every single one of these things has been said before. There has to be some special reason why this is so. I mean, if it were just a mirror and telescope, I wouldn’t be worried.
