Folk wisdom in optical design
This paper outlines techniques which, if borne in mind during
the system conceptualization and design phases, can improve
efficiency, effectiveness, and ultimate performance. Costs, mechanical constraints, parts choice, specification and procurement, available adjustments, alignment sequence
and retention, deterioration of performance with aging, and other factors are considered.
