Newtonian primary mirror by William Herschel zoom

Newtonian primary mirror

A Newtonian primary mirror of speculum metal with a focal length of 313.06cm. The mirror is very smooth and regular but for a prominent zone of short focus whose radius was about 2/5 that of the whole mirror. There is also a small spot of short focus at the centre. The whole mirror appeared under the knife-edge to be of nearly spherical figure, or perhaps very slightly parabolic.
Sir William Herschel
