Paper Abstract

A study for the optical design of an UV-imaging camera is briefly reported. We emphasize the guidelines that drove the design choices adopted, as trade-off between optical quality and efficiency. Optical solutions for an additional long focal length channel are also given. This study is performed in the framework of the SUV project, a 170 cm Ritchey-Chretian space telescope to be made with the collaboration of Russia, Ukraine, Italy and Germany.
