Example text

The stand provides the support for which both the mount head and tube assembly are reliant upon for stability. Mounts come in a variety of models, all of which are intended to help the observer in locating objects in the night sky and track them. This can be done manually through turning slow motion control gears by hand, or automatically through the use ofelectric motors. There are fundamentally two types of mount: • Altazimuth • Equatorial Altazimuth Mounts The Altazimuth mount is the simplest design of all.

Its tripod was wobbly and the eyepieces were poorly constructed, but I loved using it nevertheless. Alas, I don't own that telescope anymore, but since then I have owned many astronomical instruments. Some were better than others, but I still had many hours of enjoyment out of them. When my parents bought me that telescope all those years ago, they never considered all the little problems or weaknesses that came with it. They were not astronomers, nor had they any experience of buying an astronomical instrument.

So, the best time to observe the sky is when the air is steady and the air currents are less turbulent in the early hours of the morning. The 'seeing' is an indicator of the steadiness of the air and depends upon a number of factors. • The flow of air currents many kilometres above the observer. • Localized phenomenon, such as the air flow inside observatories or telescope tubes. Obviously the first factor cannot be directly controlled by the observer. The second factor however, can be controlled to an extent.
