Refracting Telescopes contain 2 lenses
They are not at all that to use complex
Complicated? I don't think so!
The refracting telescope is, infact very simple to use. It consists of two primary lenses; the Eyepiece lens, which is located in front of the eyepiece (convex). and the objective lens which is away from it(concave). Light is from the object is passed through the objective lens, where it moves towards the focal point and into the eyepiece lens, where light light moves away from the focal point. A refracting telelscope can only work if the right lenses are in the right position. The focus of the image created can be anjusted using the eye piece.
