Resolving power webpages' link

  1. Jun 4, 2007 #1
    Can anyone refer me to some webpages that contain the expressions and derivations of Resolving power of microscope,telescope and simple triangular glass prism?I am not having a book and simple google search is not providing results needed.

    What I want is the RESOLVING POWER FORMULA for a triangular prism,a microscope and a telescope.As far as I know,the theories for the latter two use the concept of diffraction through a circular aperture.

    Please help me with it.

    Thank you in advance.
