Abstract

The study of conics has to get applications in science, particularly in Astronomy. So the objective of this work is to demonstrate the reflective properties of the hyperbola and the parabola and its relationship with the conceptual study of a Cassegrain telescope from the perspective of Geometry Optics. For this purpose, an optical prototype was designed using low-cost materials. An instructional guide will also be provided to prove that the reflective proprieties of these conics are fulfilled by light rays.
