What are the types of telescopes and Cameras?

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

From Answers.com:
Optical telescopes
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)

* Non-achromatic
o Galilean telescope
+ Galileoscope
o Keplerian Telescope
+ Aerial telescope
* Achromatic telescope
* Apochromatic
* Superachromat
* Varifocal gas-lens telescope

Reflector telescopes (Catoptrics)

* Newtonian telescope
o Dobsonian telescope
* Gregorian telescope
* Cassegrain telescope
o Ritchey-Chrétien telescope
o Dall-Kirkham
* 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
* Klevtsov-Cassegrain
* Argunov Cassegrain telescope
My favorite is the Catadioptric Newtonian Telescopes.
