i would like it in terms of science, refracting telescopes.etc.
What are the advantages and disadvantages of each one of them.
A website would be helpfull
Three main types of optical telescopes – and these are divided into subgroups. They all have their different advantages and disadvantages and they are used in different areas of astronomy.
Refractor telescopes (Dioptrics)
o Galilean telescope
o Keplerian Telescope
+ Aerial telescope
* Achromatic telescope
* Varifocal gas-lens telescope
Reflector telescopes (Catoptrics)
* Newtonian telescope
o Dobsonian telescope
* Gregorian telescope
* Cassegrain telescope
o Ritchey-Chrétien telescope
* Large liquid mirror telescope
* Pfund telescope
* Schiefspiegler telescope
* Toroidal reflector / Yolo telescope
* Herrig telescope
* Stevick-Paul telescope
Combined Lens-Mirror Systems (Catadioptrics)
* Schmidt camera
* Schmidt-Newton telescope
* Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope
* Lurie Houghton
* Maksutov telescope
* Modified Dall-Kirkham telescope
* Argunov Cassegrain telescope
My favorite is the Catadioptric Newtonian Telescopes.
