Abstract
The possible element of telescope optical system with the composite aperture can be two-mirror system, consisting of two confocal paraboloids (Mersen system). This system is an aplanatic anastigmat for infinite target. Its obvious deficiency is the image field curvature. The ways of its elimination are defined by the application of optical system. The possible versions of their constructive realization are considered.
