Engineering Book on lenses, their types, properties, etc.

  1. Mar 24, 2015 #1
    Specifically I am interested in a book which talks about lenses, their types, where and how they are used. How do binoculars, telescopes work (how to construct them), what type of lenses to use...

    Am I asking for too much? Would really appreciate if any of you guys could suggest me of such a book(s).

    There is a really old Dover edition -- two volumes: Conrady, "Optics and Optical Design" that is old, but is pretty complete for simple systems.
