Paper Abstract

Astigmatism and field curvature, the predominent residual aberrations in a Wolter type grazing incidence telescope, can be significantly reduced by shortening the length of the mirrors. Performance improvements as well as advantages regarding alignment of a short versus a long grazing incidence telescope are discussed.
