Maresse described a classical solid catadioptric system (SoCatS) for a lens comprising a solid body and a single-focal Maksutov type construction, characterized by two refractive and two reflective surfaces. Due to ray propagation through the solid block twice, the design is feasible at a single wavelength, otherwise suffering on chromatic aberration induced by dispersion. We design a SoCatS for a telescope and describe a class of solutions to reduce and control chromatic and some spherical aberration in the solid catadioptric system.
