Abstract
In this paper a lens correction algorithm based on the see- saw diagram developed by Burch is described. The see-saw diagram describes the image correction in rotationally symmetric systems over a finite field of view by means of aspherics surfaces. The algorithm is applied to the design of some basic telescopic configurations such as the classical Cassegrain telescope, the Dall-Kirkham telescope, the Pressman-Camichel telescope and the Ritchey-Chretien telescope in order to show a physically visualizable concept of image correction for optical systems that employ aspheric surfaces. By using the see-saw method the student can visualize the different possible configurations of such telescopes as well as their performances and also the student will be able to understand that it is not always possible to correct more primary aberrations by aspherizing more surfaces.
