Abstract
This paper describes the optical design of a 10x zoom objective lens for the visible wavelength band that was required to fit within a limited envelope. The paper describes the design approach and results, including some practical issues that must be addressed when a design is to be fabricated and deployed. The scope of the paper includes discussion of generating a starting point, optimization for best overall configuration and for maximum MTF, glass selection considering both chromatic and thermo-optical issues, configuration choices for minimum tolerance sensitivity, boresight error analysis, and lens length budgeting.
