Paper Abstract

It is often advantageous, when faced with the necessity of characterizing or recognizing a distant source, to measure the spectral distribution. This is normally done with a scanning Michelson interferometer fed by a large collecting telescope. The effect of errors in the Michelson interferometer has been analyzed by several sources,1,2 but little work appears to have been done on the effect of aberrations introduced by the collecting telescope.
