They are usually attached at the Cassegrain or Nasmyth focus. A collimator optics, made of several lenses, parallels the light beam, which is focused on a detector by a camera optic with a high f-ratio, which results in a favorable image scale on the detector. Analyzers such as filters, polarizing optics or Fabry–Perot Interferometers used as tunable narrow band filters can be moved into the parallel beam. If a slit is brought into the focal plane of the telescope and a prism or grating into the parallel beam, one can change from imaging to spectroscopy within seconds.

Because of this dispersion, therefore, nothing scatters exactly as the inverse fourth power. Rayleigh’s 1871 paper did not give the complete explanation of the color and polarization of skylight. What he did that was not done by his predecessors was to give a law of scattering, which could be used to test quantitatively the hypothesis that selective scattering by atmospheric particles could transform white sunlight into blue skylight. But as far as giving the agent responsible for the blue sky is concerned, Rayleigh did not go essentially beyond Newton and Tyndall, who invoked particles.
