Lurie-Houghton Telescope
Corrector Lens Assembly

PHOTO: Corrector Lens Assembly
Here is a front view corrector lens assembly with the sleeve from the secondary mirror mount. The lens cell was made with the help of Cullen Bennett of Tempe, Arizona and the two lenses were made by Mike Spooner of Page, Arizona. The corrector lenses correct the spherical and coma aberrations of the spherical primary mirror used in the Lurie-Houghton design. This photo was taken 16 May 2000 with an Olympus D-600L digital camera in Mike's shop.
