Paper Abstract

We present calculation schemes for the attainment of isoplanatic imaging on the optical axis using aspherical surfaces. The consequences of the isoplanatic condition for the illumination over the cross-section of an imaging beam are considered. The variation of the useful image volume as a function of the isoplanatic prescription is illustrated by a few examples. Finally, we present a calculation scheme to attain stigmatic imaging over a ring field area.
