AbstractTwo configurations of all-sky cameras employing "direct" and "folded" optical systems are analyzed. First-order optical theory is employed to determine optical performance and selection of design parameters. The paper is intended to present a rudimentary analysis to fill the gap in the available literature between the mechanical description of existing all-sky cameras and the generalized high order theory of optical systems and aberrations.
