Astronomy telescopes: planetary observations


The Moon and Solar System's planets, our closest neighbors in the vast expanse of the Universe, have always attracted people's eyes. With the invention of the first astronomy telescopes, people could see much more - explore their surfaces and learn about their origin and evolution. Modern astronomy telescopes, as you know, are more complex and powerful and allow us to see not only planets and satellites, but also remote galaxies, star clusters, nebulae, and other deep-sky objects. Still, planetary observing still is and always will be very popular among amateur and professional astronomers. The most suitable telescopes for planetary observations are without a doubt refractors, but if you prefer versatility to focused specialization, then you can opt for other optical designs, such as reflectors and catadioptric telescopes.

Telescope for planetary observations features smaller focal length and aperture than the one for observing deep-sky objects of space. These telescopes don’t have central screening, so produced images will be contrast and bright. The most powerful models allow you to see not only distant planets such as Uranus and Neptune as plain colored discs, but also study details on their surfaces. Of course, for a detailed study of Pluto only space telescopes can be suitable (Hubble, for example), but with the help of a ground-based telescope it can also be seen as a small colored disc.
