Johns Hopkins University invented the Super Telephoto Military Telescope. The goal of this research is to achieve maximum magnification with the smallest effective aperture while maintaining the telescope's light flux and resolution angle.
The luminous flux is 30 times more than other regular telescopes of the same diameter. Other telescopes have a 47-times lower resolution angle at their centre. The magnification can reach a maximum of 300 times. On such a small scale, this is the first monocular to attain this magnification and clarity.
