Full text of article: Russian language.

Abstract:
A well-known technique superachromatization, which suggests using of the corrector, which includes diffractive and two refractive lenses, developed and adapted for the plastic-lens optical systems. The effectiveness of technique demonstrated by the design of a micro-objective for video cameras operating in the range "day-night".

Key words:
correction of monochromatic and chromatic aberration, superachromatization, diffractive lens, refractive lens, diffractive- refractive corrector, plastic-lens objective.
