A method is presented for the calculation of paraxial design parameters of a double-sided telecentric zoom lens with easy variation of the magnification range. The telecentric lens consists of a zoom lens with a fixed distance between focal points and a lens with a fixed focal length. The third-order aberration analysis is also performed, and spot diagrams are calculated for two f-number values.
