Paper Abstract

In this work we present a method to design compact and anastigmatic telescopes using tree mirrors, in the proposed system two of the mirrors are build in the same substratum to reduce the size of the telescope. The tree conic constants are used to correct the spherical aberration, comma and the astigmatism. In this work the equations are presented for the design to first order, to third order and we propose a method to calculate the conic constants exactly, Using our equations a telescope is designed and the obtained parameters are used in the optical design program, OSLO, to verify the quality of the image.
