New Main: Newtonian

Newtonian telescopes are a type of reflecting telescope that uses a concave primary mirror and a flat secondary mirror to gather and focus light. Newtonian telescopes are generally less expensive than other types of telescopes, such as refracting or Cassegrain telescopes. This makes them a good choice for those who are new to astronomy or who have a limited budget.

 Because of their design, Newtonian telescopes are able to achieve a large aperture (the diameter of the primary mirror) without becoming too long or unwieldy. This means they can provide high-quality images of celestial objects, including planets, stars, galaxies, and nebulae.
