Abstract

In this paper, two-mirror telescopes having the secondary mirror decentered and/or tilted are considered. Equations for third-order coma are derived by a vector approach. Coma-free condition to remove misalignment-induced coma was obtained. The coma-free point in two-mirror telescopes is found as a conclusion of our coma-free condition, which is in better agreement with the result solved by Wilson using Schiefspiegler theory.
