An artificial method of replacement reflecting surfaces by thin "mirror" lenses gives us the opportunity to create analytical equations as the base for subsequent parametrical synthesis of optical system consisting of two and three reflecting surfaces. In this case optical powers of the components are determined by required image field curvature. The ratios of back focal lens to the distances between the components are considered as parameters. In one particular case we've got a variant of three-mirrors system with acceptable aberration correction when one mirror has a spherical shape. Constructions of three-mirrors optical systems are presented.
