Reflecting Telescope

Category : JEE Main & Advanced

Reflecting telescopes are based upon the same principle except that the formation of images takes place by reflection instead of by refraction.

If \[{{f}_{o}}\] is focal length of the concave spherical mirror used as objective and \[{{f}_{e}},\] the focal length of the eye-piece, the magnifying power of the reflecting telescope is given by \[m=\frac{{{f}_{o}}}{{{f}_{e}}}\]

Further, if D is diameter of the objective and d, the diameter of the pupil of the eye, then brightness ratio \[(\beta )\] is given by \[\beta =\frac{{{D}^{2}}}{{{d}^{2}}}\]
