The Astronomy Center has provided educational resources to introductory astronomy educators since 2003. Over the past 20 years, the rapid pace of discovery has rendered some of our linked resources obsolete. Thus, the Astronomy Center will be decommissioned on March 1, 2022. Our highest quality resources will be retained on ComPADRE.org.
Astronomy notes is an educational resource for introductory astronomy classes for undergraduates. This section discusses refracting, reflecting, and radio telescopes. Definitions and properties of light-gathering power, resolving power, and magnifying power are also included.
