We present the correction of distortion for a novel type of an all-reflective zoom objective. The allreflective unobscured optical-power zoom (OPZ) objective with four mirrors has been previously designed and presented. The magnification of the OPZ can be varied by changing the curvatures of the first and the last mirror, which results in a zoom factor of 3. However, the objective exhibits significant distortion. For the unobscured design principle, we present the basic distortion model with its different types of distortion. Based on simulation data of the objective design, we optimized the parameters of the model and verified that model by applying it to images taken with the objective.
