More about the product
\"I’m going to tell you a little-known fact,\" begins Harold Richard Suiter in his new book . . . \"Telescopes are easy to test.\" It’s true. The hard part for most amateurs has been finding out exactly how to do it . . . Now, at last, Suiter has analyzed the star test in book-length thoroughness. He presents a bounty of information and instruction in a clear, practical manner never before available . . . The book displays with perfect clarity all the star test comparison images you’ll ever need, illustrating all kinds of telescope aberrations in their pure forms . . . Those are just highlights of this long overdue book. It quantifies almost all the effects it discusses, presents modulation-transfer functions indicating how they affect different types of observing, delves into diffraction theory, and yet is full of advice and experience from real-world amateurdom.
