Paper Abstract

Image quality in periscopes is generally limited by the aberrations of field curvature and secondary spectrum. It will be shown how these aberrations are related to the other optical and physical parameters of a periscope so that effective design trade-offs can be made. Specifically, this paper examines the relationship of secondary spectrum and field curvature to periscope length and diameter and their relationship to the relay lens system configuration, field of view, relative aperture, and image relative illumination.
