Physics of Telescope Course (27 – 29 May 2022)

May 27 @ 5:00 PM - May 29 @ 8:00 PM

د.إ600.00 – د.إ800.00
• Date: 27 – 29 May, 2022
• Time: 5:00 PM – 8:00 PM
• Location: Al Thuraya Astronomy Center – Dubai
• Age: 15+
This course goes beyond the simple yet important explanations of the workings of telescopes. We will go deep inside and understand the laws of physics that govern the optics and make telescopes work for us. We will use many equations with examples to actually see these laws making sense to us.
This course will also include practical use of various telescopes’ designs.
You will be able to fully understand the hidden world of photon interaction with telescopes’ optics and you will fully appreciate the Physics involved with this amazing machine, we call a telescope!
