Abstract
A 32-cm diameter corrector plate with a 0.866 neutral zone is easier to fabricate than one with a 0.707 neutral zone. The making of a Wright corrector is chosen because it has twice the strength of a Schmidt plate. The Wright optical system permits three possible conversions: a f/2.7 camera and a f/2.7 Newtonian comet seeker both with a 5.50 flat fields and a f/8.3 Wright-Cassegrainian system. The specifications are listed in Table 1.
