Paper Abstract

We describe an unusual optical layout of the fluorescence detector telescope what is a part of the Pierre Auger observatory. The fluorescence detector is a very fast telescope with the relative aperture fno ~ 0.77 and the large field of view 30 × 30 degrees. The primary objective for the Auger fluorescence telescope is to measure accurately the longitudinal development profiles of air showers of the cosmic rays above 10 EeV energy.
