Abstract
The paper examines an off-axis three-mirror telescope with a flat local surface. Designed to image aurora in UV light from a satellite, this 20-cm telescope has an f/2 primary and an f/8 tertiary focus. The focal surface has a diameter of 4 cm which subtends 1.3 deg. The telescope is engineered to have very low distortion so that resolution would not be degraded during integration of images moving on the CCD detector at the same rate as that of the CCD readout.
