The Schmidt lobster eye design for a grazing incidence X-ray optics provides a field of view of the order of many degrees, for this reason it can be a convenient approach for the construction of space X-ray monitors. It is possible to assemble Schmidt lobster eye telescopes with the dimensions and focal lengths acceptable for nano-class satellites. In this paper, a draft of nano-class space mission providing monitoring of specific sky areas is presented. A preliminary optical design study for such mission is performed. Two of possible optical designs are presented, for which the field of view, the effective input area and other basic optical parameters are calculated. Examples of the observed images are also presented.
