9780126298109: Astronomical Optics, Second Edition

This book provides a unified treatment of the characteristics of telescopes of all types, both those whose performance is set by geometrical aberrations and the effect of the atmosphere, and those diffraction-limited telescopes designed for observations from above the atmosphere. The emphasis throughout is on basic principles, such as Fermat's principle, and their application to optical systems specifically designed to image distant celestial sources.

The book also contains thorough discussions of the principles underlying all spectroscopic instrumentation, with special emphasis on grating instruments used with telescopes. An introduction to adaptive optics provides the needed background for further inquiry into this rapidly developing area.

  • Geometrical aberration theory based on Fermat's principle
  • Diffraction theory and transfer function approach to near-perfect telescopes
  • Thorough discussion of 2-mirror telescopes, including misalignments
  • Basic principles of spectrometry; grating and echelle instruments
  • Schmidt and other catadioptric telescopes
  • Principles of adaptive optics
  • Over 220 figures and nearly 90 summary tables

Review:

"Astronomical Optics is a comprehensive presentation of the fundamental principles of optical design and engineering for astronomical remote sensing instruments. I highly recommend this book for the personal library of scientists and engineers who have a serious interest in the optical system engineering of remote sensor systems."
--ICARUS
"From the Reviews:
The book is clearly focused on its title subject, and the results are superb."
--PHYSICS TODAY
"This book is excellent....I think that it will be recognized by everyone in astronomy, telescope design, and astronomical instrument design as an outstanding book."
--D.E. Osterbrock, UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, SANTA CRUZ
"...clearly the most complete and rigorous treatment of this subject. It should become the basic reference for those considering design of astronomical instruments. A must for all instrumentalists, and observationalists should have nearby."
--C.R. O'Dell, RICE UNIVERSITY
"This is a text which sets out the general design principles of astronomical optics in a palatable way."
--NATURE
