From the Back Cover:

This book provides a unified treatment of the characteristics of telescopes of all types, including telescopes whose performance is set by geometrical aberrations and the effect of the atmosphere, and those diffraction-limited telescopes designed for observations from above the atmosphere. The emphasis throughout is on basic principles, such as Fermat's principle, and their application to optical systems specifically designed to image distant celestial sources. Astronomical Optics, Second Edition also contains thorough discussions of the principles underlying all spectroscopic instrumentation, giving special emphasis to grating instruments used with telescopes. An introduction to adaptive optics provides the needed background for further inquiry into this rapidly developing area.

Review:

"Astronomical Optics is a comprehensive presentation of the fundamental principles of optical design and engineering for astronomical remote sensing instruments. I highly recommend this book for the personal library of scientists and engineers who have a serious interest in the optical system engineering of remote sensor systems."
--ICARUS
"From the Reviews:
The book is clearly focused on its title subject, and the results are superb."
--PHYSICS TODAY
"This book is excellent....I think that it will be recognized by everyone in astronomy, telescope design, and astronomical instrument design as an outstanding book."
--D.E. Osterbrock, UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, SANTA CRUZ
"...clearly the most complete and rigorous treatment of this subject. It should become the basic reference for those considering design of astronomical instruments. A must for all instrumentalists, and observationalists should have nearby."
--C.R. O'Dell, RICE UNIVERSITY
"This is a text which sets out the general design principles of astronomical optics in a palatable way."
--NATURE
