Abstract

We discuss the basic concepts that have been useful in our work designing multiple aperture telescopes with wide fields of view. We examine combining errors at zero field and errors that are linear as a function of field. An easy optimization for satisfying the sine condition to eliminate linear piston errors is given. Methods for estimating the RMS wavefront errors for the lower-order combining errors are given.
