Catadioptric Telescopes

The catadioptric telescopes use both lenses and curved mirrors in their optical system. The primary mirror forms an image and the lenses are designed to correct it. Indisputable advantages of these telescopes are the large aperture and the large field of view, and at the same time they are very compact. All these features make them very popular among amateur stargazers.
