Abstract

This paper describes a preliminary 30-arcmin prime focus (f/2. 0) refracting field corrector system for the University of California Ten-Meter Telescope (UC TMT), a compact 40-arcmin internal Cassegrain (f/1. 75 hyperbola to f/5. 0) broad-passband ( lambda 3300Angstrom to lambda 1. 0 mu ) corrector, suitable for imaging and multi-object spectroscopy at the UC TMT, three 60-arcmin external Cassegrain correctors for 300-inch f/1. 8 and f/2. 0 parabolic primary mirrors and a (300-inch) 40-arcmin external Cassegrain (f/1. 0 parabola to f/4. 0) broad-passband ( lambda 3300Angstrom to lambda 1. 0 mu ) corrector with ADC.
