I've just watched the documentary recently posted on this forum about Area 51, in which they used a special camera with a pretty big lens to veiw
Area 51 from what i think they said was about 26 miles.
The pics were ok, but nothing amazing.
So my mind starts thinking about what kind of viewing equipment can see things from extremely long distances, and the most extreme examples i can
think of is astronomy equipment.
Please know that i have no idea about cameras and telescopes, so this is just an idea that i am curious about.
If a novice backyard astronomer can buy telescopes with camera facilities on them that can view the heavens, why can't/haven't the same kind of
thing be used to view Area 51 from just a few miles away?
