Paper Abstract

Guidelines for specifying instrument magnifications and image quality are derived to aid in evaluating optical layouts that are suitable for a proposed 1-5 micron filter photometer using a 2D array. The instrument is required to have a wide range of discrete magnifications and to be usable at the Cassegrain focus of three Kitt Peak telescopes. Two optical layouts, both lens-mirror hybrids, are described and their optical properties are compared.
