Abstract

A variety of aplanatic and anastigmatic Schmidt Cassegrain and Schmidt Gregorian telescope designs with nonzero Petzval curvatures are investigated. Relaxing the Petzval constraint permits the development of high performance photo/visual instruments which are capable of diffraction limited imaging over fields of view of 1-2°.
