Abstract

In this paper we present the design of three Galilean-type telescope systems with magnifications of 2.2×, 4×, and 5×. These systems are free of the large weight and length as well as the reduced field of view, which are frequent undesirable properties of Galilean telescopes. These designs have a moderate field of view and a short length, with reasonably good aberration correction, and may be used as binocular telescopes or magnifiers with a large working distance.
