The development of generic optical designs for supporting wide-field imagery from an array of individual telescopes is presented. These systems will be employed to gather imagery over a total field of 0.5 to 1.0 degree. Various design possibilities are studied assuming the use of a square field, with the option of utilizing a slit field. A general optical design concept that can be transferred to a reasonable number of fairly closely packed arrays is examined, evaluating the promising three- or five-mirror arrangements.
