The fast growing is supported by the increased selling of a lot of stuffs related to the wild. There are so many TV shows like National Geographic, and Wild Life arouse an interest of so many people to do their own exploration. In this article, I will describe the history of telescope as an important background of today’s binoculars as well as the development done by ATN as a leading binoculars manufacturer.
History of the Telescope as an important background for Binocular’s emerging
In 1608, the telescope was first discovered by Hans Lippershey, a Dutch lens maker. He discovered that putting the two lenses with a certain distance can make objects appear closer. He has applied for a patent on his invention, but was rejected. In 1609, Galileo heard about the invention of the telescope, and he immediately made a tool and pointed to the night sky. With the aid of a telescope he braced his heliocentric theory, namely that the entire planet in the solar system surround the sun. It is against the beliefs of the church stating all sky objects surround the earth. Galileo was about to publish his finding when he was almost burnt by church officials but fortunately he was eventually jailed for life at home.
In 1704, Sir Isaac Newton made propose a new concept in the design of the telescope. Newton stated that the lens may break white light into a spectrum of light that shape to cause something called bending chromatic, namely reddish halo around the object being viewed by using a mirror. Newton avoided such problems in telescope design by using a curved mirror used to collect light and emit back to the focal point. The reflector mirror acted as a kind of light basket where the greater light-gathering basket, the more light that can be collected. Newton’s telescope was called reflection telescope or reflector.
Earth binoculars called filled binocular produce the final image that is upright to the direction of the original object. It can be obtained by using a third convex lens inserted between the objective lens and eyepiece. Third convex lens is flipping a shadow without magnification, therefore, this lens is called inverting lens. Earth binoculars are used to watch closely any object exist on the earth’s surface.
