Description

Here we model a Cassegrain telescope with the Mathematica application package LensLab, including the primary and secondary mirror objectives. For this example, we combine several component functions into a special function that we call CassegrainTelescope. Within CassegrainTelescope, we use CylinderGraphic to create the telescope's housing shroud.
