Optical astronomy

Optical astronomy is the study of the universe using visible light and other forms of electromagnetic radiation that can be detected by the human eye or optical telescopes. Optical telescopes use lenses and mirrors to collect and focus light from distant objects, allowing astronomers to study the properties of stars, galaxies, and other celestial bodies. The main research areas of optical astronomy include the spectral properties of celestial bodies, the formation and evolution of galaxies, and the search for exoplanets and other habitable worlds. Technological advances such as adaptive optics and interferometry have allowed astronomers to push the limits of optical astronomy, revealing increasingly detailed views of the universe.
