It is demonstrated that realistic unobscured mirror systems may be fabricated using only ordinary (rotationally symmetric) surfaces. The low-order aberrations may be balanced by careful selection of the curvatures and tilt angles. The remaining higher-order aberrations are tolerable for slow systems and may be corrected with slight asymmetric surface departures for faster systems.
