Found in 20 Collections and/or Records:
A reprint of an article by C.G. Wynne entitled 'Wide Field Cassegrain Telescope', taken from the 'Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society', 163 (1973), pp 357-367.
A letter from C.G. Wynne to Sir Richard Woolley, 15 February 1967, suggesting that he (Wynne) write to A.D. Thackeray enclosing a copy of his paper on paraboloid correctors for Palomar, and a copy of Woolley's reply of 20 February supporting this proposal.
A letter from C.G. Wynne, 2 May 1974, who questions the facts stated in S.C.B. Gascoigne's notes on telescope optics, and a copy of Redman's reply of 6 May. There are handwritten notes by Redman on the reverse of his letter.
Correspondence with C.G. Wynne regarding direct photography and corrector lenses for Cassegrain and prime foci.
Correspondence with C.G. Wynne, Imperial College of Science and Technology, acting as a consultant on various aspects of optical design, especially correctors. The correspondents are Redman, S.C.B. Gascoigne, J.D. Pope and H.C. Minnett, A.A.T. Project Manager. The letters include reference to problems with Schott, contractors for the lenses. The papers include data, a spot diagram and a drawing of a test arrangement for prime focus correctors.
Correspondence with G.J. Odgers, Dominican Astrophysical Observatory, British Columbia. Redman requests a copy of the technical study on the Dominican Astrophysical Observatory large telescope, including comments by I.S. Bowen. Odgers agrees to send a report by B. Rule and recommends C.G. Wynne's paper on 'Richey-Chrétien Telescopes and Extended Field System'. There is also a copy of Redman's letter to Wynne requesting a copy of his paper.
A copy of a letter from Redman to S.C.B. Gascoigne, 4 November 1969, and Gascoigne's reply of 16 January 1970, regarding the cost of prime focus correctors, rumours of astigmatism in the Isaac Newton Telescope correctors, C.G. Wynne's spot diagrams, and mounting tenders.
The agenda and minutes of the fourth meeting of the Isaac Newton Observatory Board of Management on 11 May 1948, with a report by E.H. Linfoot and C.G. Wynne on Ross-Schmidt Systems for consideration at the meeting.
A copy of a letter from A.W. Rodgers to J. Wampler regarding his conversation with Chet Wheeler of Boller and Chivens about a Cassegrain Schmidt camera for the Anglo-Australian Telescope, and asking Wampler to obtain a quote so that the A.A.T. Board can consider it with the C G. Wynne camera proposal. He also requests Wampler's attendance at the next Astronomical Working Party meeting.
A copy of a letter from B.N. Watts to C.D. Wynne, Imperial College of Science and Technology, suggesting that his work on a possible new design for the French 3.6m telescope be discussed at a joint meeting of the N.H.O. Panel on Drive and Control and Mounting and P.A.N.E.L. [Panel on Instrumentation for Large Optical Telescopes].
A letter from C.G. Wynne to Sir Richard Woolley informing him that he is going to write to A.D. Thackeray regarding the Palomar correctors (see RGO 48/583).
A copy of a letter from Sir Richard Woolley to A.D. Thackeray informing him that C.G. Wynne has finished a design for a correcting lens (zero power) for the 200-inch telescope, and asking if he would be interested in acquiring a corrector for the Radcliffe telescope.
A copy of a letter from Sir Richard Woolley to C.G. Wynne quoting from a letter by A.D. Thackeray regarding a possible corrector lens for the 74-inch telescope (RGO 48/579), and asking for suitable replies to his questions.
Copies of letters from C.G. Wynne, 29 January 1974, and Dr Hans Elsässer, Max Planck Institute, undated, to J.D. Pope concerning the spectroscopy of various telescope systems.
An undated note by S.C.B. Gascoigne on the Anglo-Australian Telescope optical design, requesting that C.G. Wynne be asked to produce designs for the correctors.
The agenda and papers of the third meeting of the Northern Hemisphere Observatory Planning Committee Technical Panel on 22 May 1974, with the minutes of the previous meeting of 27 February 1974, and handwritten notes by Redman on a conversation he had with C.G. Wynne on 10 May 1974.
