Abstract
Two mirror systems with zero spherical aberration are examined. Special kinds of two mirror systems are investigated. They can be used in X-ray or UV spectral regions. A few new fast aplanatic systems are described. Some systems can not be found using Seidel and Gauss optics. Systems can be used for fast telescopes, spectrographs, radio-telescopes, light-collectors etc. Design of the Big Space Telescope is discussed. It will be launched in 1999.
