Large bolometer arrays capable of operating at millimeter wavelengths are being built for astronomical use. For optimal sensitivity, high-quality optics with wide fields of view are needed. We report on the design of reimaging optics for use on the 100-m Green Bank telescope with a 64-element bolometer array.
