Who was Ludwig Schupmann?

Ludwig Ignaz Schupmann was a German professor of architecture and an optical designer. He is principally remembered today for his Medial and Brachymedial telescopes, types of catadioptric reflecting-refracting telescopes with Mangin mirrors that eliminate chromatic aberrations while using common optical glasses. Used in early lunar studies, they are used now in double-star work.

The asteroid 5779 Schupmann is named in his honour.†
