Two stars are just barely resolved by a telescope with a lens diameter of 0.500 m. Determine the angular separation of the two stars. Assume incident light of wavelength 500.0 nm.
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
theta = 1.22*labmda/D = 1.22*5x10^-7/0.5 = 2.44x10^-7 radiant
