Abstract

There are total eight degrees of freedom in designing a three-mirror system. If we correct four kinds of third order aberrations and the system should have the specified effective focal length, the remaining three degrees of freedom can be used for selecting a suitable configuration for a specific application. We suggest an analytic design procedure for a three-mirror telescope system which has a suitably sized secondary mirror and proper separations between mirrors, and is corrected for four kinds of third order aberrations, spherical aberration, coma, astigmatism, and field curvature. Two design examples are shown. One has a compact configuration with off-axial field, the other has relatively long configuration with annular ring field.
