LOW POWER HUYGENIAN Constructing a Huygenian eyepiece The apparent field of view:

26
LOW POWER HUYGENIAN Constructing a Huygenian eyepiece The actual lenses are not thin, so the raytrace has to be revised to take into account the principal planes within the thick lenses. This is done using Gullstrand s equations. The lens radii are measured using a spherometer, and their focii and principal planes calculated. For the eye lens crown element: The achromatic is a cemented doublet so the internal radii cannot be directly measured. For calculations to determine the internal surface radii refer to end of article.

The improvised optical bench Even an ATM optical bench is expensive. But you can always improvise with plasticine and a carpenters rule. More precise separation mesures can be made with a vernier caliper. Lens radii can be measured using a spherometer. This is a Fob Watch style spherometer, graduated in Dioptres, and Pouces (a French inch - there are 36 Pouces in a Dioptre). A lens with a focal length of 1m has a power of 1 Dioptre. Surface powers can be added or subtracted to find the overall power of the lens. These values are then inputted into Gullstrands equation to find the true focal length and the position of the principal planes.

LOW POWER HUYGENIAN Constructing a Huygenian eyepiece Machining the eyepiece barrel You could machine the barrel from brass barstock, but brass bar is very expensive, and since most of the barrel is hollow it would take an awfully long time at the lathe producing bin loads of swarf. The sensible thing to do, from both a machining time and cost viewpoint is to select suitable tubestock, and design the barrel from available stock tube outside diameters and wall thicknesses. Brass tubes are not always compatible so some barstock maybe required, but it can be kept to a minimum. Turning screw threads is awkward so a design that relies on good fits and soldered parts makes the machinists job simpler. Finished parts can be fastened together using hidden compression rings & circlips (not shown). CZ121 tube & barstock costed @ £43.48 inc VAT. Compared to £83.19 inc VAT for 3 round x 6 length. Alternative is scrap brass pipe & fittings.

LOW POWER HUYGENIAN Constructing a Huygenian eyepiece a very delicate operation - counterboring the body tube to 2".382 ID using a single point boring bar. Overhang causes the tool to chatter if the cuts are more than a few thou deep. The tolerance is only a thou. The ID was checked at the end of each run, the runs were driven by the leadscrew to obtain the best surface finish.
