    Types of viewfinders

    Hello: I apologize for the very basic nature of this question. What is really a Newtonian viewfinder and what is a Galilean viewfinder? All the information on this topic will be welcome (definitions, links, etc).
    Thanks in advance

    Galileian type uses lenses, it's a reversed telescope. It's a refractive device.

    Newtonian should use mirrors (at least partially, or in the form of prisms) . It's basically a reflective device.
    I know a chap who does excellent portraits. The chap is a camera.
