The basic requirement for the optical circuit of spectrometer-polarimeter for investigation of planets are stated. The spectrometer-polarimeter is intended for the equipment of the telescope which is planned to be placed aboard the International Space Station by the ISR of RAS. Based upon the formulated tasks, we discuss the variants for the technical decisions of the spectrometer-polarimeter determining units. We propose the circuit for setting the telescope on an object and following the object with the aperture of each devices included in the complete set of the telescope scientific equipment.
