By Louis Bell, Ph.D.

This book is written for the many observers who use telescopes for study or pleasure and desire more information about their construction and properties. Not being a "handbook," it attempts neither exhaustive technicalities nor popular descriptions of great observatories and their work. It deals primarily with principles and their application to instruments that are likely to come into the possession, or within reach, of students and others for whom the Heavens have a compelling call.
