Abstract : A fast camera of comparatively simple design, with a large field and slight losses and scattering to light is described. Formulas are given for computing the aberration of the system. Different modifications of the system (achromatic and plane field) are considered. Results of computation of 15 different schemes with different focal ratios and refractive indices are tabulated. The system can be used for the study of meteors, nebulae, zodiacal light, air-glow, etc. It can also be used as a camera of a spectrograph. (Author)
