The problem of telescope-type resonator optical scheme optimization under the conditions of mirrors thermal deformations is considered. To correct thermal distortions the use of mirrors with calculated aspherical profiles within the laser resonator is proposed. It has been shown, that for the calculation of mirrors corrective profile the methods based on the geometric optics approach are quite efficient.
