MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews of the second edition:

"Through its wealth of detail and mathematical rigour, this book can be seen as a modern classic ... ." (Roderick Willstrop, The Observatory, Vol. 125 (1184), 2005)

"This is a 'serious' book on reflecting telescope optics ... . It is aimed at serious optical engineers who wish to design telescope optical systems from first principles and gain an understanding of the mathematical theory which applies. ... There is an historical overview, followed by chapters on basic gaussian optical theory of telescopes, aberration theory of telescopes ... . These are followed by a comprehensive set of references, list of figures, list of tables, name index and subject index." (Roger Feasey, Journal of the Auckland Astronomical Society AAS, February, 2005)
