Gene,

Thankyou for the link to the hands-on Multiple-beam Interferometry article. :)

Here is another link for reference on Wiki regarding Michelson Interferometer (MI) multiple beam (Tolansky) :

Just to be clear, I should have replied in the other thread as I wasn't referring to the Michelson Interference lens but the new budget finite conjugate lens.

Those are back in stock for only $73 now.
But thanks for the links! At least now I have some idea what this MI method is all about though I still have no idea what's unique about the lens for this purpose. I recall researching and there was a different spec most commonly useful for MI objectives which this one doesn't match - more magnification or NA, I forget what... sounds like it was discontinued due to better understanding of the technique, or perhaps the narrow application for this spec lens is less popular now. I did get one and did a bunch of tests, then got a 'CF' N Plan 10x 0.30 160/.17 which seemed better, though I haven't yet compared them carefully.

Yeah,

I know him 8) He's a good seller and he almost knows exactly what he's doing.
