Reflector Telescopes

A reflector telescope is an optical instrument that uses mirrors to gather and focus light from distant celestial objects. Also known as a reflector or Newtonian telescope, it employs a curved primary mirror to collect incoming light and reflect it to a secondary mirror, which in turn directs the light to the eyepiece for viewing. Reflectors are popular among astronomers for their ability to offer larger aperture sizes at relatively lower costs compared to refractor telescopes.
