- She said that telescopic observations reported in 1977 reported the detection of methane and ethane on Neptune but not Uranus.
- This was done first through telescopic measurements and early spacecraft fly-bys.
- Scientists have studied the rocks and soil returned from the Moon by the Apollo astronauts and have used telescopic and spacecraft observations to learn a great deal about the lunar environment.
- His astronomy brought back to the fore, he went on to make the earliest telescopic observations in England.
- But telescopic observation reveals the different rings of the Saturn, called the Cassini divisions, as well as the nebula of the constellations such as the ‘Orion.’
- He saw it directly and it was visible for some months, but is now a telescopic object.
- While Mars and the Moon were objects of much attention by early telescopic observation, the surface of Venus remained a mystery.

- Yet the telescopic boom design allows the operator to work in close when on severe slopes or in unstable conditions.
- The vehicle that we are here concerned with is essentially a telescopic boom designed and constructed to raise or lower platforms or other fixtures to required positions.
- When the sun comes out, it will open, allowing users to swim under blue skies, but when the weather turns, the telescopic structure will slide shut and heating will kick in.
- The telescopic boom section is the one nearest the truck, and a folding section of slick line bridges the extending portion.
- Among the new information is the fact that although the circular shaft of the minaret appears from the exterior to consist of three telescopic sections, structurally there are in fact only two.
