The stray radiation rejection requirements for the Synchron-ous Earth Observation Satellite telescope were determined and compared with estimated stray radiation rejection performance. It was found that normal baffle design practice and A/20 rms surface roughness on the mirrors is adequate to prevent stray light from limiting the telescope measure-ments as long as the sun is 10 degrees, or more, from the edge of the field of view for a baffle tube length to aperture diameter ratio of 6.
