“Basic Optics and Optical Instruments”
This makes a good read if you ever wondered why we pay so much for terrific lenses…
Thanks to Richard Bradbury for passing on this wee gem, who writes;
“A few years ago I was trying to discover more about basic optics, and I came across a document on the web called Basic Optics & Optical Instruments. It’s not the widely known book of the same name (Carson; 1989), but a typewritten manuscript of a basic optics course. It describes optical phenomena in simple terms, and I occasionally refer to my pdf copy still, which I can always edit using a sodapdf software for this. Unfortunately it has no authors names on the cover and no publishing details, and I can’t remember where I found it. It’s available on my Google Drive to those with this link.
If anyone knows anything more about who wrote it I’d be happy to learn.”
