In this chapter, we consider several techniques for mounting individual lenses in optical instruments. These techniques are most applicable to optics with apertures in the range of 6 to 406 mm (0.25 to 16 in.). Although most of the discussions deal with glass lenses interfaced with metal mounts, the designs are generally applicable to lenses made of optical crystals and plastics. Numerous examples are included to illustrate the use of given design equations.
