Achievements of computer technology of automated shaping of large-sized optical details with achieving of diffraction quality of the image, developed by the state research-and- production association 'Optics,' permit us to expand technological opportunities of the method on creation of aspherical off-axis mirrors of a complex configuration. One example of automated shaping of off-axis paraboloids of 300 - 400 mm in diameter demonstrates opportunities of the method. Technical parameters of made off-axis aspherical mirrors are listed. Problems of automated shaping of off- axis mirrors and technological ways of their decision are specified.
