This paper presents specific examples of the fabrication of the APO Zenit-GL and APO Zenit-GTs high-quality apochromatic objectives, used in the Gamma-L and Gamma-Ts space-based optoelectronic complexes, along with the design of a high-accuracy spectral-beamsplitter prism module. The use of compact mirror–lens optical systems with eccentrically arranged image fields is also considered, and this in turn makes it possible to substantially reduce the mass of the apparatus and creates a fundamentally new class of compact systems for remote probing of the earth.
