Paper Abstract

There are zoom system applications in which transverse image displacement caused by centering errors can be disturbing. By choosing an optimum reference point (adjustment of reference mark), image displacement is minimized. Formulas are given that permit residual image displacement to be already calculated from the design of thin lenses. Examples show that different types of zoom systems differ markedly in sensitivity to this effect of centering errors.
