Abstract
Two-mirrors aplanatic optical design for amateur telescopes up to 0.5m class is described. The optical system is low cost, easy for adjusting, fast and large field of view can be used for visual and astrophotography. The method for calculation of baffles for straight light protection is described. The optical performances and sample shots for the builted device are presented. Keywords: two-mirrors system, all-reflecting schmidt system, aplanatic system, protection from straight light, baffles, obscuration, wide-field, telescopes for amateurs.
