Whilst the session will be of general interest it is designed to support the teaching of optics and telescopes in the AQA Astrophysics option of the A-level specification. We will look at the understanding and construction of ray diagrams for refracting and reflecting telescopes as well as spherical and chromatic aberrations in lenses. If time allows, we will look into the role of diffraction in determining the resolution of a telescope.
Although this is a stand-alone session, it does follow on from, and extend the session on ray diagrams on 19th May.
Joining details will be sent 48 hours before the session.
