Angular resolution

The ability of an instrument such as a telescope, to distinguish objects that are close to each other. The angular resolution of an instrument is the smallest angular separation at which the instrument can observe two neighboring objects as two separate objects. The angular resolution of the human eye is about a minute of arc, while it can get up to 0.7' arc min for people with an extreamly good eyesight.
