  • Refraction telescopes
    • A refraction telescope works like a magnifying glass
    • They use convex lenses
    • The eyepiece of the telescope is a concave lense. This means its thinner towards the centre of the glass
    • If you look into the eyepiece, the light will come together to make a magnified image
    • Refracting relescopes have two problems however
      • The size of the lense is limited
      • The picture isnt all that clear

This is a nice simple mindmap. Mindmaps help to remember things as the arrows show links between different areas of the topic to help you understand it better. It is not too technical, but it helps you understand the basics, and well, before you go onto something more detailed.
