Oct 07, 2009 Best simple Newtonian design software? posted in ATM, Optics and DIY Forum: Is there a better simple general Newtonian design program than Newt4Web? NEWTONIAN TELESCOPE DESIGN PLANNER (vIE1.
05 August 2016 ) INTRODUCTION A Newtonian reflecting telescope can be designed to perform more efficiently than any other type of optical system, if one is careful to follow the laws of The design mathematics is simple and can be easily accomplished by hand by Dale Keller, from Newt 2. 5, with minor edits to make it compatible with NewtWeb.
Telescope design is part science and part art. Many of Newt's calculations were taken from standard formulas in books. Some were invented out of necessity by the author. A very common problem in Newtonian telescopes is glare.
An easy way to check a Newt is a newtonian telescope design program. It ray traces the telescope checking for vignetting, optimizes diagonal size, calculates baffle size and position and more. It allows you to easily and quickly change any of the design parameters of the telescope LurieHoughton Telescope Design with a Comparison to the Newtonian Telescope by Rick Scott. Why should I build a telescope? In the spring of 1999, I was reading the telescope design" bible"Telescope Optics by Harrie Rutten and Martin van Venrooij.
I was reading it just to learn more about telescopes in general and about Schmidt Various optical design software applications available (free or purchased): Newtonian Telescope Design Planner by Jim Fly: Free, online, interactive software allows operator numeric field entries, then it calculates dimensions.
Newt for the Web (NewtWeb for short) is a Newtonian Telescope Computer Aided Design program. It ray traces a Newtonian telescope design checking for vignetting, optimizes diagonal size, calculates baffle sizes and positions, and produces performance and dimensional data for construction.
