Abstract

Schmidt and Maksutov catadioptric systems suffer from sphero-chromatic aberrations that are of opposite sign. By the use of a hybrid system, whose corrector is a deep meniscus lens with an aspheric curve on the external surface, the sphero-chromatic residuals have been reduced and, as a consequence, usable relative apertures have been increased.
