View Full Version here: : Learning about Optics

After a quick search found not much, can any one point me in the direction on a book, web sites about optics? I don't know much about the optical bits of scopes so thought it was about time I learnt a few things. This is probably a big field I'm thinking so thanks in advance.

read it 3 times.
Online... anything by Bratislav.
And for telescope optics in particular, there is this site: http://www.telescope-optics.net/index.htm#TABLE_OF_CONTENTS
Edit: Ooops! My eyes are painted on, Clive already linked to this site. I just woke up ;)
