ID Code: L6-36
Purpose: Illustrate rays for on-axis astigmatism.
Description: Rays from a single point source with a single divergence are focused by a lens which has a cylindrical component of curvature. Here the focal length of the vertical focus is shorter than the focal length of the horizontal focus, as seen in the pictures at the left above. The upper picture, taken from the horizontal plane including the central ray, shows the vertical focus. The picture at the right above, taken from an angle above the horizontal, shows the waist between the horizontal and vertical foci.
