Three Ideas to get a better Image of a Distant Star or Planet. A Better Telescope.

This article was rearranged to get the most important part of the information noticed.

Based on that idea, I think it might be possible to use a stationary telescope, and just combine snap shots. For example 4 pictures in the row, and 4 pictures in each column. That gives a total of 16 snap shots needed for one image. These 16 images are weaved together according to their placement.

The last idea would take random samples of the light waves and weave the image together to produce a better image of the distant object. The way this would work, is the light coming from the distant object is broken up in pieces. These random pieces would be put together into an image for a chance at a better image of the object. The images need to have enough time between them for a random light wave.

In the last method, the light comes at the lens at different angles and speeds. This is because no two light waves are coming at the same angle or speed. This allows different pieces of information to be captured by the camera at different times. This angle and speed has lots of variation which seems random. These random pieces are put together for a bigger more detailed image.

I was able to test out this last method using a digital camera. The results look promising. I call this method light weaving. This is because the images are weaved together.

To reduce the distortion or noise from the last method, more than one set of images can be taken. The weaved image from the different sets are then put together as an average of color. This could produce a more accurate image.


A more powerful telescope by using parallelization. We know how a common telescope works. Light enters the lens from and the light waves are expanded out by reflecting the light. We also know the problem of size. It takes a bigger more expensive telescope to see a distant object more clearly, an example is looking at Pluto. This is because more light is being captured.

If we used more than one telescope, the power would be magnified. Instead of one telescope, we would use four of them. These four telescopes would each be fixed and pointed at a target, such as a distant star. Using computer technology, the image from these four telescopes would be combined into one image.

Here is my example of combining the image. There are two rows of telescopes. Each row contains two telescopes. That makes a total of four telescopes. They make up a grid like pattern. Based on their orientation, the pixels from the images are combined into one, just like the grid, pixel for pixel.

Why would this produce a better image? Because the light waves coming from the distant object are scattered, they need to be gathered. By gathering them with a multitude of telescopes a bigger more accurate picture can be created. The picture would contain more of the light that came from the object.

I suppose this would only be distorted the closer the object is. Because the stars are so far away, the distortion would be very very low, but that also depends on how far apart the telescopes are from each other.

A cheaper idea at producing the same or better results! Rather than four telescopes, only one telescope would be needed. This one telescope would be operated by a computer that would move it along rows and columns, while taking snap shots as it moved. All of these images would then be combined the same way the four telescopes would work.

The problem with this idea is the object is always moving, the one telescope would need to move fast for the purpose of reducing distortion.

If the telescope can be made to move fast enough, it would be able to produce a much bigger and more detailed image of a distant object.
