# Would this question have been better to ask in Astronomy? Could it be split it into two? Something else?

I've asked the question What might the first deep space telescope using the Sun or Jupiter as a gravitational lens be like? in Space Exploration SE. I chose that site because it involves propulsion and coordination of possibly an array of space telescopes. I left a message in The Observatory (chat) as well as a "heads-up" to whomever actually checks there.

But the question also about telescope instrumentation, data analysis, and image reconstruction from a gravitational lens which do not work the same as "normal" lenses (deflection varies as $$r^{-1}$$ rather than $$r$$).

I wonder, should I split this into two, and ask the imaging part here? Or perhaps just ask an open-ed up, basic question about image reconstruction from gravitational lenses here instead? (do algorithms exist, how hard would it be, what would need to be measured, etc.)

Your question there seems well-received. I would leave it as is, and if you would like, ask a new question here tailored to this community to gather further detail.
