    Some random thoughts on Vernier scales:


    The term "Vernier scale" seems to get tossed around by some who don't understand its meaning. Here ia copy of a page from the manual The Paramount Robotic Telescope System User Guide by Software Bisque. These are definitely not Verniers.

    Verniers scales have a lot in common with moiré patterns https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Line_moir%C3%A9
