Paper Abstract

We have investigated the possibility of adding grazing incidence relay optics (GIRO) to an advanced nested solar X-ray telescope in order to enhance or extend the overall performance of the system. The instruments studied include magnifiers and collimators. We envision that a particular GIRO instrument will be moved upon command into or out of the focal plane of the main telescope. Ray tracing studies reveal the optimum design among the several GIRO options.
