It is shown that using an afocal Mersenne system that possesses known anaberrational properties makes it possible to construct a number of compact mirror and mirror–lens systems that possess aplanatic, anastigmatic, and planastigmatic correction of the aberrations of the resulting image, with the length of the system being about a factor of 4 less than the diameter of its entrance pupil.
