To correct spherical aberration of a spherical mirror the apochromatic meniscus lens may be used. The linear observation of light beams is taken as a set parameter. The location of meniscus lens, concerning spherical mirror and its radiuses correction are taken as corrective parameters. In this case the dependence of parameters, determining the sphere of meniscus system existence, was received. The meniscus lens was received on the condition of aplanatic correction of aberrations. The transformation of this corrector in a two component system leads to the original construction of the optical scheme. The versions of a practical application of the received lens design were considered.
