Advice for stirring your online community and fostering engagement

When you enter into any new area of science, you almost always find

yourself with a baffling new language of technical terms to learn before you can converse with the experts. This is certainly true in astronomy both in terms of terms that refer to the cosmos and terms that describe the tools of the trade, the most prevalent being the telescope. So to get us off of first base, let’s define some of the key terms that pertain to telescopes to help you be able to talk to them more intelligently. The first area of specialization in telescopes has to do with the types of telescopes people use. The three designs of telescopes that most people use are the Refractor, the Reflector and the Schmidt Cassegrain telescope. The refractor telescope uses a convex lens to focus the light on the eyepiece. The reflector telescope has a concave lens which means it bends in. It uses mirrors to focus the image that you eventually see. The Schmidt Cassegrain telescope uses an involved system of mirrors to capture the image you want to see. A binocular telescope uses a set of telescopes mounted and synchronized so your view of the sky is 3-D. Beyond the basic types, other terms refer to parts of the telescope or to the science behind how telescopes work. Collimation is a term for how well tuned the telescope is to give you a good clear image of what you are looking at. You want your telescope to have good collimation so you are not getting a false image of the celestial body. Aperture is a fancy word for how big the lens of your telescope is. But it’s an important word because the aperture of the lens is the key to how powerful your telescope is. Magnification has nothing to do with it, its all in the aperture.

I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout of your website?

Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way
of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1
or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

Howdy! I know this is kinda off topic however I'd figured
I'd ask. Would you be interested in trading links or
maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa? My blog goes
over a lot of the same subjects as yours and I think we could greatly benefit
from each other. If you happen to be interested feel free to send me an e-mail.
I look forward to hearing from you! Fantastic blog by the way!

What's the last date I can post this to to arrive in time for Christmas? http://www.osov.cz/pharmacy/citalopram-10mg-photo-rvyy.pdf citalopram withdrawal If the figures are repeated in Sunday's election, Merkel will lack the support to renew her coalition with the FDP and Germany will most likely end up with a 'grand coalition' of conservatives and SPD, like the one Merkel led in 2005-2009.

Jonny was here http://www.tyofysioterapeutit.fi/ivermectina-6-mg-dosis-en-nios-fwdd ivermectin injektion pferd My list for living has made me realise that when I'm taking part in something I enjoy I feel so much better. It gives me a real boost. In May, I went to see Stonehenge at sunrise with a friend. As soon as I stood inside the ancient stone circle it was like my chemo fog lifted.

Cuomo’s administration has signed off on a plan that calls for SUNY Downstate to cease operations at LICH in September.
