This fun and simple hands-on astronomy activity lets learners explore the difference between telescope magnification and resolution. They will learn that observing instruments, whether telescopes or their eyes, have limited resolution. Higher magnification might make it easier for the human eye to perceive the detail the telescope is capable of, but the telescope cannot collect any more detail (in other words, get better resolution) with higher magnifications. The activity simulates this with diagrams and explanations. The PDF contains step-by-step instructions, photos, presentation tips, background information, and ready-to-print activity handouts.
