Paper Abstract

In order to pilot and visually monitor the Canadarm operating on the shuttle, a zoom lens with a minimum wide angle of 98° field of view was needed. The design of the chosen solution is presented. There are 22 lenses arranged in 4 groups allowing mechanical compen-sation. The range of focal lengths is 8.2 to 25 mm ; the aperture is f/3.6. The weight is 1.6 kilos.
