This collection of questions and resources covers telescopes and astronomical instruments. The questions are designed to be used for in-class student engagement activities. Topics include refraction, reflection, telescopes of different types and focal arrangements, powers of a telescope, CCDs and spectrographs. Flash illustrations are used to help illustrate the concepts being studied.

This is part of a larger collection of similar astronomy modules from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. This entire collection covers most of the topics found in most undergraduate introductory astronomy courses.
