# FIRST THING TO SAY IT'S NOT REAL ACTUALLY STARS DON'T HAVE SPIKES THEN DIFFRACTION SPIKE ESSENTIALLY

WE NEED TO GET BACK SO WE COULD TALK ABOUT DIFFRACTION ACTUALLY DIFFRACTION IS THE EFFECT WHERE SO IF U GO JUST A PLANE WAVE LIGHT COMIN ALONG , JUST A PLANE WAVE THEN IT'LL JUST HOWEVER IF U PUT AN ** IN THE WAY THEN ACTUALLY WHAT HAPPENS IS OBVIOUSLY THE LIGHT DOESN'T GO THROUGH THE ** IT STOPPED THE LIGHT THAT'S GOING THROUGH THE ** GET THROUGH BUT AS IT COMES OUT THE OTHER SIDE IT SPREADS OUT ON THE OTHER SIDE AND THIS PHENOMENON CALLED DIFFRACTION BUT WHENEVER U BLOCK THE PART OF LIGHT A PLANE WAVE STOPS BEING A PLANE WAVE AND REMEMBER A PLANE WAVES IS WHAT U GET FROM A POINT LIKE OBJECTS >> U GOT A POINT LIKE OBJECTS ALONG THE WAY THE LIGHT THAT COMES TO US IS PRETTY MUCH PLANER AND SO THAT'S HOW , U KNOW WHEN U DETECT A PLANE WAVE THAT TOLD THAT THERE'S A POINT LIKE OBJECT BACK THERE WHEN U TAKE A PICTURE U SEE A POINT LIKE OBJECT OF COURSE ... WHEN IT COMES TO THE OTHER SIDE IT'S NO LONGER A PLANE WAVE , IT'S NOT SPREADING OUT SO IF U JUST HAVE A ROUND HALL , FOR EXAMPLE A TELESCOPE WITH THE LIGHT GOING IN THE DIFFRACTION U GET IS A FAMOUS THING CALLED AN AIRYPAN , WHENEVER THE SPIKE IN THE MIDDLE OF A SERIES OF RING AROUND IT >>> AND SO THE DIFFRACTION PATERN U WOULD REALLY GET IF U REPRODUCE THE MOST PERFECT IMAGE U COULD WITH A TELESCOPE THAT WAS JUST A ROUND RAPTURE WOULD BE THAT STRUCTURE WOULD BE A SPIKE IN A SERIES OF RINGS U VERY RARE TO SEE THOSE RINGS CAUSE AT LEAST WHEN U TAKING A PICTURE FROM THE GROUND THEN THE ATMOSPHERE MISSES THINGS UP TO SUCH AN EXTENT THAT BLOWS AWAY >>>> SO THAT'S THE BASICS OF DIFFRACTION NOW UNFORTUNATELY TELESCOPES , THERE ARE OTHER THINGS GOING ON, IT'S NOT JUST THE CIRCUIT OF RAPTURE AND FOR EXAMPLE THE KIND OF A REFLECTING TELESCOPES WE TYPICALLY USE IN ASTRONOMY THE BIG REFLECTING TELESCOPES THE LIGHT COMES IN BOUNCES OF A PRIMARY MIRROR UP TO A A SECOND MIRROR AND THESE FOUR PIECES OF METAL , THESE 4 VINES OF COLT ARE ACTUALLY HOLDING THAT SECOND MIRROR IN VERY PERCISE LINE THERE'S ADJUSTMENT TO IT BUT ONCE IT'S CO-LIMITED (BRITISH ACCENT ) THE JOB OF THESE FOUR PIECES OF METAL IS STRICTLY HOLD THE SECOND MIRROR IN A VERY FIXED POSITION SO U GOT A BIG MIRROR AT THE BOTTOM AND A LITTLE MIRROR AT THE TOP AND THE LITTLE MIRROR ACTUALLY OBSTRUCT SOME THE LIGHT COMING THROUGH SO ___ A MEDIUM RAPTURE WITH A FURTHER OBSTRUCTION IN THE MIDDLE OF IT , TURNS OUT THAT IS NOT THE THING THE DOES THE DAMAGE , THE THING THAT DOES THE DAMAGE IS U NEED SOMETHING TO HOLD THE LITTLE MIRROR UP SO U HAVE THESE THINGS CO -STRUCTS JUST BASICALLY SUPPORTS TO HOLD 'EM UP IN A TYPICAL TELESCOPE THERE'S FOUR OF EM (THEM) MISSED A COUNT , ONE ON THE SIDE WHICH BLOCK BIT MORE OF THE LIGHT , THE LIGHT GOES PROS IN, GOES PROS THESE STRUTS AND ACTUALLY DIFFRACTES BECAUSE IT'S GOING PAST ANOTHER OBSTRUCTION AND THAT FURTHER MISSES UP THE IMAGE ENOUGH CAUSE I WANNA SLEEP
