Paper Abstract

Zoom telescopes offer the system designer great flexibility and give the user an uninterrupted change from wide angle to narrow angle fields of view. This has been recognised by the selection of a zoom telescope for the U.K. MoD's Phoenix RPV programme. The mechanical design of such a telescope is described. Those aspects relating to volume production are considered in more depth.
