The Dragonfly Telescope Use Ten Canon 400mm f/2.8 Lenses to Detect Faint Galaxies

While telescopes do a great job gathering light and obtaining images of ridiculously distant objects, even the largest and most advanced units are assumed to be unable to detect certain faint structures due scattered light which may be hiding them. An awkward looking, multi-lens array was built to solve the problem – the Dragonfly Telephoto [...]Show More Summary
