Other Interesting Telescope and Optical Designs

Many of the optical designs on the following pages are original, others are recreated to compare their performance.

Note: I am working on 3D lens cell designs for those designs using Chief type correcting lenses with commercially available lenses.  This is aimed at simplifying the Chief design since getting the lens holder right is the most critical part of the Chief design. I’ll attach a Solidworks 2001 file and STL file with the posted design.  Thanks to JT for his help.  Here is a pic. of the cell.  The lens is to be held in place with #2 self tapping screws and plastic washers and there are edge hole on the side for pivoting.
