telescope history


Telescopes are optical instruments that magnifies Distance thing. The telescope is used to observe things that are far away.

Spectrographs are a tool used in astronomy that separates light by its wavelength and then it records the spectrum of light.

Cameras are used in in astronomy to take pictures of thing and it's also used in spectrographs to record the spectrum of light.

Computers are used in astronomy they can be used to simulate theories are other thing an example is planet nine when the simulated our Solar system being formed and it showed the there had to be a ninth planet. Computers can also be used to record data.
