Paper Abstract

Various types of designs were stu-died by the author at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) for the optics of the high-resolution television camera for the Mariner '69 and '71 missions to Mars. This telescope had to perform over the spectral range 7100-4850A, weigh less than 9. 1 kg (20 lb), and have a rear clear-ance of 38 mm (1. 5 in. ). The goal for this 2° full field, f/2. 5, Ti< 4. 0, 5.08 mm (20. 0 in. ) efl cassegrain system was 40% response at 80 ip/mm; such resolution implied an rms spot size of about O. 00025 in.
