The Optical Monitoring Camera (OMC) will observe the optical emission from the main targets of the gamma-ray instruments onboard the ESA mission INTEGRAL. The OMC is based on a refractive optics with an aperture of 50 mm focused onto a large format CCD ( pixels), and a field of view of . This paper describes the design of the optical system and the optical baffles of the OMC.
