Paper Abstract

The Maksutov scheme for the compensation of an aspheric concave mirror by means of a single spherical mirror is described. The residual longitudinal spherical aberration and the corresponding Zernike polynomial coefficient are computed. The optical error budget for the scheme, as obtained from the analytical computations and by means of the CODE V program for design and engineering of optical systems, is presented. The application of such a scheme to the verification of the figuring of the hyperbolic primary mirror (D equals 1.70 m) of the T-170 Telescope to be launched on board of the Russia/Ukraine/Italy/Germany SPECTRUM UV satellite is discussed.
