Abstract
The existence of aberrations in image formation by mirrors and lenses was well appreciated, even in the 17th century. Newton, for example, devised and used a method for making paraboloidal mirrors, which were used. in telescopes to avoid the spherical aberration of the axial image of a distant object which is always present when a spherical reflector is used.
