More about the product
This book has been written for the Amateur Telescope Maker (ATM)
— one who grinds, polishes, figures and tests optical surfaces with the objective of achieving near perfection and desires a practical guide to testing and interpreting full-aperture optical interferogram using a homebuilt interferometer. To that end, I start with a review of optical interference, after which I provide a systematic approach on how the ATM can build an optical interferometer without any input other than this book and homemade, surplus or common off-the-shelf components. For the Williams interferometer the experienced telescope maker is likely to have accumulated a well-stocked “Junquebox” that could be a significant component source. However, the main components if purchased today (Summer 2017) cost less than $300: He-Ne Laser $69.95 and power supply $11.95, 30mm cube beam splitter $39.95, GRIN lens $47.50 or 8.0mm ball lens $29.95, reference optic $26.00, Webcam $25.00 and auxiliary webcam lens $49.50. See Appendix D or a list of suppliers. This book describes how to make mounting hardware for little more than the time and effort it takes to build them but if purchased new or even used these would be a significant additional expense.
