Title Telescopes and spectrographs
Description
  • This free course, Telescopes and spectrographs, looks at how they are designed to improve our ability to observe the universe. You will examine how different technologies have been developed over the last four hundred years to enable us to look deep into space. <link rel="canonical" href="http://www.open.edu/openlearn/science-maths-technology/science/telescopes-and-spectrographs/content-section-0" /> First published on Wed, 02 Mar 2016 as <a href="http://www.open.edu/openlearn/science-maths-technology/science/telescopes-and-spectrographs/content-section-0">Telescopes and spectrographs</a>.

  • <p>We are used to seeing spectacular astronomical images in the press and on the internet. This unit gives an in-depth introduction to two of the most important instruments used to create these images and explore the science behind them – telescopes and spectographs.</p><p>This unit is drawn from the preparatory work for the practical residential school at the Observatori Astronomic de Mallorca. The unit image shows a student at work in one of the telescope domes at the Observatori.</p><p>This unit is used for training by the Faulkes Telescope Project, http://faulkes-telescope.com/.</p><p>This unit is from our archive and is an adapted extract from Observing the universe (SXR208) which is no longer taught by The Open University.
