RE: Mosby Null Test

The Mosby Null Test is a version of the Ronchi Test where the recieving grating is predistorted to compensate for the distortions (curvature of the lines) that a parabola would produce in the Ronchi test. The test is interesting in theory but can be difficult to properly interpet as the lines need to be percieved as being perfectly straight and need to be done at exactly one location - closer or further and the mirror is not tested properly.
BTW, it would be nice if this pane where I am typing this in was larger in height so I don`t have to scroll up and down so much to read all of the contents that I have typed into the pane. This paragraph takes up more than what can be seen.
Bob Goff would be a good guy to make an article on the subject although he may want to charge you for the privlege of doing so.
