This paper pursues further applications of the geometric design procedures described previously [ L. Mertz, Appl. Opt. 18, 4182 ( 1979)]. One novel system with a large spherical main mirror provides an almost ideal searchlight solution with numerous potential applications. In addition, several new forms of coma correctors are developed for application with the Arecibo-style telescope configuration.
