So I think small telescopes are tremendous, the complementary thing (that word
again) to large telescopes, to radio, to the other wavelength regions and to space
astronomy. We need them. Furthermore, anybody who's ever looked at astro-
economics, which is an interesting subject, full of lots of handwaving, can easily
see that small telescopes are the only places where most people are going to get
observing time. Predict, for example, how many graduate students are going to
be ...

Although, Caltech were prepared to go ahead on their own with a segmented
mirror design, eventually they agreed to form a joint enterprise with the University
of California to manage the project. Caltech would pay most of the construction
costs, and so own the telescope, whilst the University of California would pay for
its running costs over a period of 25 years. This became the 10 m segmented
mirror Keck telescope (see Section 4.2). 50 Things now got complicated as the
NNTT was ...

The Night Sky Through Small Telescopes C. R. Kitchin, Robert W. Forrest ... If you
have not yet bought your telescope, then it would be a good idea to read Chapter
2 and especially to look at Table 2.1 first. If the telescope has direct read-outs of
the position that it is pointing to in the sky (called Right Ascension and
Declination - Section 1.4), or is computer controlled, then you may want to try
setting on things immediately. BUT YOU DO NOT HAVE TO HAVE THESE

With a very few exceptions, galaxies are faint objects, and that means the
astronomer wants both dark skies and a large-aperture telescope to see them
well. Backyard astronomers will find that even low levels of light pollution can
make galaxies very difficult to see, and things get even worse if you're using a
small go-to telescope as well. Unlike nebulae, light pollution filters aren't of any
use because galaxies emit a broad range of light wavelengths rather than just a
narrow band of ...
