1. How does a reflecting telescope work?
- Using an objective lens and an eyepiece lens.
- By making light travel through more than one material so that it is refracted.
- The curved primary mirror focuses light rays from a distant object to an image in the same way as the objective lens in a refracting telescope. This image is then magnified by the eyepiece lens, also just like a refracting telescope.
- It has an objective lens in which the light is reflected.
