To gaze at the stars, should you use a microscope or a telescope?
If you gaze at someone or something, you look steadily at them for a long time, for example because you find them attractive or interesting, or because you are thinking about something else. 凝视
A microscope is a scientific instrument which makes very small objects look bigger so that more detail can be seen. 显微镜
A telescope is a long instrument shaped like a tube. It has lenses inside it that make distant things seem larger and nearer when you look through it. 望远镜
Facts about Telescopes
Telescopes are more than just lenses and mirrors—they’re advanced electromagnetic radiation detectors designed to overcome the many challenges of observing very distant objects.
The first known practical telescopes were refracting telescopes invented in the Netherlands at the beginning of the 17th century, by using glass lenses. They were used for both terrestrial applications and astronomy.
