how does a photon enter a telescope (mis)behaving as a wave and then it hits the sensor as if it was a particle.
This has always screwed with my head but being a mech engineer i try to equate it to something "real" like ocean waves
When they roll past a point etc as a total wave, they refract in a relatively well understood manner, but when they hit the beach, each particle in the wave has its own momentum and it disperses its energy based on what it hits.
