Abstract
A second parallel CCD (CMOS) imaging system for an telescope objective with the fixed D/f' is proposed in detail. As a direct imaging system that the CCD target surface coincides with the imaging surface of the telescope objective, it shows the outstanding performance of more than doubled resolution compared with the ordinary telescope objective under the same D/f'. Based on the discussions about the second parallel optical path telescope system, three design examples are compared and analyzed. The relation between the optical properties of image field and the optical elements of the second parallel path is clarified, which provides an operable method for readers. This practice has proved the outstanding performance of the new telescope objective photoelectronic imaging system which indicates potential applications in broad scientific and industrial prospects.
