How should a telescope be used?

If without the help of any equipment or instruments, just through the naked eye to observe the distant object, I believe that anyone is unable to see the specific shape of the distant object.  To solve this situation, the telescope was invented.  For telescopes, people will not feel strange, its emergence of great convenience for people to distant things or things observation.  There are many kinds of telescopes, the most important of which is the single telescope.  

Single telescope plays an important role in astronomical observation and ground observation, and it is an indispensable tool.  So how should a telescope be used?  Here is a brief introduction to how to use a single telescope.  


1. How should a telescope be used?  

Step 1: Preparation.  

Monoculars allow people to see distant things or objects precisely because they can magnify objects at a certain rate.  Therefore, before using a single telescope, in addition to checking whether the telescope is in good condition, we also need to understand the structural characteristics and magnification of the single telescope.  

Step 2: Determine the observation target.  

The great feature of a telescope is its ability to make clear observations of distant objects and objects.  So when using a telescope, you should first determine the target you want to observe.  

Step 3: Initial operation of the monoculars.  

After determining the observation target, it is necessary to open the monoculture, that is, open the eyepiece and objective lens, put the eyepiece of the monoculture in front of the eyes, and then adjust the telescopic length of the monoculture.  It is worth noting that a single telescope is usually divided into two or four segments  

Step 4: Adjust the monoculars accurately.  

The main task of this step is to adjust the focal length of the telescope by adjusting the focal length knob of the monoculars until the object or object being observed is clear.  

2. Precautions for using the telescope  

First, we give priority to with safe whatever you do, then never use a telescope in the process of walking, I have a friend who will be the only single-cylinder telescopic walked again, the results accidentally fell down suddenly, dam body and broken and also good not life-threatening, if there is in the process of tourism fell the consequences will be very serious,  Areas with difficult terrain must be especially careful not to walk around with binoculars.  

Second, a single telescope has the advantage that you can use one eye to watch, look for a long time can be changed to the other eye, so it is helpful to link the eye fatigue, but the use of a long time must be open that eye, is also beneficial.  


Third, take into account the exit pupil distance. The larger the exit pupil distance, the more suitable it is to watch with eyes. If you need to wear eyes, it is best to adjust the exit pupil distance to the maximum, so that you can see things in the distance more clearly.  Anyway, be safe. It’s not worth it to hurt yourself with a telescope to see the beautiful scenery.  

3. Is it better to have a telescope with one or two barrels?  

From the observation effect, the effect of binoculars with specifications is much better than the effect of single binoculars, images rich three-dimensional sense, higher resolution, imaging bright, observation is more comfortable, but the volume weight of single binoculars than with specifications of binoculars less than half.  It is easier to achieve high magnification with a single telescope, such as a bird-watching mirror.  So for hand-held telescopes, binoculars are recommended for better results, and for lighter sizes, single binoculars are recommended. 

 If you can go on a tripod and want to get a high multiplier effect, you recommend a single tube birdwatching mirror.  So it really depends on what you’re going to use to really decide whether you’re going to use a telescope or a binocular.
