Abstract
Some preliminary optical designs for three wide field cameras are briefly reported for the space missions Plures and Rosetta. Plures is a proposal to the European Space Agency (ESA) for a wide field telescope able to detect Supernova explosions with a time resolution of the order of a fraction of a minute. After the Supernova detection the telescope should switch to a narrow, single-object mode in order to probe the event in a photometric and spectroscopic mode. Plures should continuously monitor the Virgo cluster with a field of view of the order of 100 squared degrees. Rosetta is a cornerstone mission of ESA for the approaching of a cometary body, after the fly-by with two asteroids. In the approach phase Rosetta should orbit around the comet. Two cameras will map and probe the surface of the comet nucleus. For the three optics all-reflective unobstructed solutions are presented.
