    In order to verity our computer simulations, we made and tested the behavior of a segmented spherical corrector ring for our scaled telescope (1/14.16). We increased the stop diameter from 12 cm (170 cm) to 15.53 cm (220 cm). And we have obtained the results that we had calculated, this means...
