Paper Abstract

The optical design of WIDE-BAND CATADIOPTRIC TELESCOPE (WFCT) has been presented in this paper. The optical system of focal length 950 mm, F/5.6 covers field of 1.5 degree and can be used for imaging purposes in the wavelength range of 450 - 860 nanometers. The performance of WFCT has been characterized by Modulation Transfer Function (MTF) values. It is a diffraction limited system. A tolerance analysis for fabricating the system has been carried out to identify the critical parameters.
