Paper Abstract

Two coincident-optical-axis, three-mirror telescopes have been designed that feature relatively low focal ratios (f/2.3 and f/3), unobscured optical aperture, large circular fields of view (6° and 8°), good resolution, flat field, reimaging with accessible field stop, Lyot or glare stop, effective stray light suppression, and ease of spectral filter integration. The design for the f/3 telescope with 8° field of view has been fabricated and validated using single-point diamond turned optics.
