Would a large network of small telescopes equal one large telescope?
The proposal.... Form a network of hundreds of amateur astronomers around the world focusing on the same objects at the same time using CCD's and automatic tracking mounts . Locate each telescope precisely with a carrier-wave GPS hack and network the whole lot through some glorious alloy of SeaDragon and PhotoSynth to produce one huge, stable, composite image.
The question.... Have I totally misunderstood the physics of magnification?
