Abstract
Optical design is both an art and a science. There is any computer program that will create lens design without guidance from an optical designer. Understanding the engineering trade-offs will help you choose the right lens design for your application. With the increasing complexity and precision of space-based and astronomical optical system, the effects of the environment upon optical system reliability are becoming more important. Some phenomena pose potential threats to the success of optical instruments. We present some of them.
