Cameras
Why do you use a camera?
You use a camera to capture an
image in the night sky.
Large Telescope
Binoculars
Why do people use binoculars?
They use them like a telescope, but for two eyes instead of one. They can zoom in just like they can with a telescope.
Small Telescope
A small telescope is about four inches in diameter.
It is perfect for looking at the stars from your backyard.
Large telescopes can be over eight feet in diameter and are usually set up in a permanant location because they are hard to transport and set up.
