In this chapter are found descriptions and illustrations of twenty examples of optical hardware involving a variety of mountings for simple and complex lenses, catadioptric systems, and prisms, as well as for mirrors and gratings. Concepts and design features described earlier in this book are frequently revisited here. Many of these examples are described in more detail and in context with their applications in other publications. References are provided so the reader can explore those resources for items of particular interest.
