“Aperture fever”. Getting the most out of amateur and profession telescopes.” Mike Evans (Leeds University) demonstrates to members of Keighley Astronomical Society how a telescope works, and the limits that the laws of nature put on its performance. He discusses how interferometry can create a telescope as big as the world, as well as the practicalities of using an amateur ‘scope.
Prof Evans said about his visit to Keighley. Thanks for an enjoyable evening. It was fun, as always, discussing astronomy with your society.
