  1. Star Testing Astronomical Telescopes: A Manual for Optical Evaluation and Adjustment Second Edition

    Star Testing Astronomical Telescopes: A Manual for Optical Evaluation and Adjustment Second Edition

    $34.95

    Testing your optics to confirm quality is obvious. What is less straightforward is the way of testing. Telescope makers can use a variety of techniques, but ordinary telescope users find that learning a workshop method is difficult. They have only one mirror that doesn't change, so it is easier to test it on the sky. The star test is a good way of evaluating instruments for one-time users.
