Advice for stirring your online community and fostering engagement

When you enter into any new area of science, you almost always find

yourself with a baffling new language of technical terms to learn before you can converse with the experts. This is certainly true in astronomy both in terms of terms that refer to the cosmos and terms that describe the tools of the trade, the most prevalent being the telescope. So to get us off of first base, let’s define some of the key terms that pertain to telescopes to help you be able to talk to them more intelligently. The first area of specialization in telescopes has to do with the types of telescopes people use. The three designs of telescopes that most people use are the Refractor, the Reflector and the Schmidt Cassegrain telescope. The refractor telescope uses a convex lens to focus the light on the eyepiece. The reflector telescope has a concave lens which means it bends in. It uses mirrors to focus the image that you eventually see. The Schmidt Cassegrain telescope uses an involved system of mirrors to capture the image you want to see. A binocular telescope uses a set of telescopes mounted and synchronized so your view of the sky is 3-D. Beyond the basic types, other terms refer to parts of the telescope or to the science behind how telescopes work. Collimation is a term for how well tuned the telescope is to give you a good clear image of what you are looking at. You want your telescope to have good collimation so you are not getting a false image of the celestial body. Aperture is a fancy word for how big the lens of your telescope is. But it’s an important word because the aperture of the lens is the key to how powerful your telescope is. Magnification has nothing to do with it, its all in the aperture.

Hmm it seems like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely
long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I submitted and say,
I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer
but I'm still new to everything. Do you have any helpful hints for first-time blog writers?
I'd genuinely appreciate it.

I'm extremely inspired with your writing talents as smartly as with the format in your blog.
Is that this a paid subject matter or did you customize it yourself?
Either way stay up the nice quality writing, it is rare to look

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed
to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
I'm not very web savvy so I'm not 100% certain. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Hi there! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers?

I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard
on. Any tips?
