R.N. Wilson's two-volume treatise on reflecting telescope optics has become a classic in its own right. It is intended to give a complete treatment of the subject, addressing professionals in research andindustry as well as students of astronomy and amateur astronomers. This first volume, Basic Design Theory and its Historical Development, is devoted to the theory of reflecting telescope optics and systematically recounts the historical progress. The author's approach is morphological, with strong emphasis on the historical development. The book is richly illustrated including spot-diagrams analysing special systems in modern form. In this second edition, the historical section has been revised. Also, various improvements to the text have been made, and new systems such as the 4-lens corrector of Delabre and the LADS corrector are now covered. The concluding Part II treats manufacture, testing, alignment, and modern techniques.


Historical introduction.
Basic (Gaussian) optical theory of telescopes.
Aberration theory of telescopes.
Field correctors and focal reducers or extenders.
Major telescopes from Lord Rosse to about 1980.


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)
