Paper Abstract

Freeform NURBS surfaces improve the resolution of two wide angle reflective telescopes. The first is an extremely wide angle four mirror design covering 40° by 40° with a 1.4 Gpixel visible array, and the second is an earth observing telescope three mirror design with a 4° by 0.8° field of view.
