Abstract
The design of a Wolter X-ray telescope takes into account the geometrical dimensioning of the shells and the choice of the coating for each of them. In this work we present a user-friendly web interface aimed to the design of multishell Wolter telescopes and to the calculation of their effective area. The application is available at http://hea-www.cfa.harvard.edu/WTD/. An example is presented.
