4.0 out of 5 stars Great Basic primer on optical instruments 30 July 2012
By Pedro P. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Great simple explanation of light and basic optical instruments. Good for someone that wants to know how scopes work, not someone going for a Phd in physics.

The only reason I gave 4 stars is that book is written as a US Navy course, so there is much talk of the navy and naval instruments that many people will find no use for.
