Telescopes would like to announce the addition of our forth in-shop
interferometer. What does this mean to you?, Our continuing commitment
to delivering high quality optics each and every time, like we have
for the last 15 years.
multiple interferometers, we are able to have multiple test setups.
Wether you purchase our computer aided interferometry report or
not, you can be assured that all of our optics are visually inspected
- at the wave front - with the most advanced testing equipment and
I have received
dozens of e-mails from prior customers , potential future customers
and even fellow competing optical companies commending our approach
to educating the public about computer aided interferometry and
Is interferometry the only means for final testing? No.
Is interferometry the only means to verify final wave front testing?
Absolutely - ask any professional.
We are firmly committed in the utilization of the interferometer
because we (as well as others who incorporate its use) know it is
the most powerful testing device available today, combined with
computer aided software and you have eliminated the "human
subjectivity" element that can skew and inflate final test
As you may know, the last several years has brought with it some
outrageous wave front claims in the optical industry. This is most
unfortunate for everyone, especially the consumer.
Since we have posted our in-depth discussion about optical quality
& testing we have had only one individual/company who completely
disputes and reputes any results verified by computer aided interferometry.
This person (and he is not alone, fortunately there are not many
like him) relies on the Foucault test to make claims of up to 1/100
wave front on his optics - ridiculous!.
I truly hope that as an educated consumer you do not buy into that
hype. This is not to say these individuals/companies do not make
good optics, we just suspect they do not deliver what they say because
they know it would be difficult for you to prove them wrong. If
they had interferometry they would not be making those claims!.
Please patronize your dedicated hard working professional, like
us as well as many others, by supporting our goals and mission.
We have always been honest, dedicated and realistic. You will not
find inflated claims or egos here, I promise you that!.
