Abstract
The image plane of Newton-Schmidt system is between Schmidt corrector and spheric mirror, which is difficult to be received. Cassegrain-Schmidt system is put forward to shift the image plane behind the primary mirror1. Based on the third order aberration theory and Gaussian formula, and choices of defocus Δ and neutral zone hn, new parameters obscuration ratio of two Cassegrain α mirrors and magnification of the secondary mirror β and concentric condition of two Cassegrain mirrors, the equation of corrector including the 2nd and 4th order terms of the even aspheric plate is established. Then the 4th, 6th and 8th order terms of Schmidt corrector plate are solved by inverse-ray tracing to correct high order spherical aberration. To reduce chromatic aberration of Cassegrain-Schmidt system, new types of achromatic Cassegrain-Schmidt systems are put forward and discussed.
