16:45 <efc> OT but.. hey Pov, can Pov do simulations of optics?
16:48 *** turbolover has quit IRC
16:49 <xcamel> glass, or other?
16:50 <efc> I was thinking various telescope types. Some reflectors, some lens, some are a combination.
16:51 <efc> The performance of the materials isn't of particular interest right now
16:55 <xcamel> the design of the scope is based entirely on what you want to accomplish (or view)
16:56 <efc> bsically i want to explore the problems that are inherent in each type. Richey-Cretian has 5th order astigmatism. Newtonian has coma. Etc.
16:57 <xcamel> Maksutov, or Mak-Newt is a great design
16:58 <xcamel> Schmidt Camera for photographic work (needs an extremely accurate drive)
16:59 <efc> 107 mm Mak on sale for $240 today hehe
16:59 <xcamel> Mine is a Ceravolo HD 216
16:59 <xcamel> Pete only made 12 of them.
16:59 <efc> Basically though all I hear is anectotal reports of why this one is good for this or that
17:03 <xcamel> the biggest drawback to the mak-newt is how hard it is to make the corrector plate and intigrated mirror
17:04 <efc> Right.. but say, the difference between what you would see with a Schmidt-Cassegrain and a Mak, I would like to quantify that..
17:05 <efc> Probably, they are all good enough for what I'd ever want to do
17:05 <efc> and if I was going to build one I'd go Newtonian just because its the most realistic
17:05 <efc> I have seen some RC vs SCT comparisons, with the RC generally blowing the SCT out of the water
17:08 <xcamel> RC's can be huge, but probably suffer the worst from atmosphereics
17:09 <efc> Yeah they aren't really in the same price class either
17:09 <xcamel> they are waaaaay up there...
17:10 *** Aeternus has joined #boinc
17:13 <efc> There was an awesome one for sale (used), custom 30" RC w/mount, a steal at $300k
17:14 <efc> Oh, only $275k.
17:17 <xcamel> OMG - and OGS!!
17:17 <xcamel> wooo-hooo
17:18 <xcamel> that is one hell of a light bucket.
17:18 <efc> Oh yeah :) I'll take that under my tree if anybody's listening. (would be a waste around here, though)
17:22 <xcamel> maybe if you lived in the middle of montana, or something
17:22 *** Novacrust is now known as JEWZILLA
17:23 <efc> The sky is really not too bad here at my parents place, but it would limit an instrument like that. And its only going to get worse.
17:23 *** JEWZILLA is now known as Crusty
17:26 <xcamel> light pollution here has made my 12" meade about useless.
17:27 <efc> You can get filters for the high pressure sodium lights that are supposed to help a lot, though, if you're looking at a high pressure sodium star I guess you're out of luck
17:28 <PovAddict> efc: povray can simulate some weird stuff (negative IOR)
17:29 <Romulus> Title: Christoph's page - Raytracing Metamaterials with POV-Ray (at www.imagico.de)
17:30 <xcamel> I used to have a really good picture of my HD216 mounted with the TeleView 101 on top..
17:31 <PovAddict> efc: bundled sample scene: http://web.mit.edu/povray_v3.6.1/samples/optics.png
17:31 <PovAddict> takes forever to render
17:32 <PovAddict> although I don't think I tried on the dualcore :)
17:32 <efc> Plain ol' BK-7 type lens glass would suffice
17:40 <PovAddict> what exactly do you want to simulate?
17:40 <PovAddict> the "material" parameters aren't much more than the ior and reflection amount...
17:41 <PovAddict> hard to simulate "problems" with materials, any reflective surface would be "perfect"
17:41 <efc> That's all I'd need.
17:42 <efc> But the curves of the surfaces would have to be very precisely defined.
17:43 <PovAddict> can your objects be defined by a curve that you then rotate?
17:43 <PovAddict> ie. a circle would give a torus, a straight vertical line would give a cylinder
17:44 <efc> I think so. Usually sections of spheres, parabolas, or hyperbolas.
17:45 <PovAddict> you can make those using cubic bezier paths
17:45 <efc> I supposed to be fair, chromatic abberation would need to be factored in with the lens though
17:47 <efc> My simple ideas get me in a lot of trouble..
17:50 <efc> I'd basically like to project an image through a setup like this: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/a/af/Maksutov_spot_cassegrain.png/500px-Maksutov_spot_cassegrain.png and see how it comes out

18:16 <xcamel> that's 5 attempts...
