We reveal a doubly telecentric Fourier 4 f relay for a holographic recording system. These lenses are made of Zeonex and their aspherical surfaces were formed by a diamond-turning machining. The total stroke of the system is 244.69 mm , including six lenses. The relay system provides a small distortion and the root-mean-square error of the wavefront within 1 / 4 λ ( λ = 532 nm ). In addition, we describe the optical behavior of the designed system and present our experiences at manufacturing aspheric lens prototypes.
