Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review

1 Scopus citations


Mathematical expressions are presented to relate object and image plane tilts in non-axially symmetric systems. Examples that illustrate the use of these expressions are given. Keystone distortion is described and quantified as a function of image plane tilt.
