Exploring the sky
A telescope is an optical device for observing planets and deep space objects. Telescopes are used to observe space. Therefore they are certainly not toys. The planets and the moon are the closest objects in the sky. Therefore, they are the first objects to observe new astronomers. Once you learn how the telescope works, look for and observe an Andromeda galaxy or some bright star. Above all, learn slowly and be patient. The light of the city interferes with observation. Therefore, observe from a dark place, and away from city pollution. The basic function of a telescope is to collect light. To amplify the details of the planet, large reinforcements are used. It is rarely used over 200x. Deep space objects (nebulae, open star clusters, galaxies) are best seen at low and moderate gains (30x – 100x)
Telescopes and deep space
The Andromeda Galaxy is six times larger than the full Moon, and is therefore easily found. The Great Nebula (M42) in Orion is twice the size of the full Moon. Observe the objects of the sky only when the sky is completely clear. After that, the biggest opponent of beginners in astronomy is insecure montage. When shopping, this is very important. The telescope can be extremely powerful, and we can enjoy watching the sky nicely. But if the telescope shakes when touched or in the wind, then it is very frustrating and observation is impossible.
NGC 2775 galaxy
NGC 2775 is the largest galaxy of the Virgo Supercluster. Therefore, it is best seen in February, March and April. The galaxy is approximately 70,000 light-years large, and 55 million years from Earth. A 4-inch (100 mm) aperture telescope shows the NGC 2775 galaxy as a dim light. Therefore, difficult to notice NGC 2775. An 8-inch (200 mm) telescope shows this galaxy as a nebulous object. 10 inches (250 mm) and 12 inches (300 mm) show an oval-shaped galaxy with a bright core. These are telescopes with large openings. In other words, it is better seen. An interesting object. Therefore, buy a telescope.
