A major limitation on the performance of lenses is the accuracy with which the elements can be centered. Most methods for alignment of lens elements require rotation of the elements in a precision bearing. Small lenses are difficult to manipulate with precision while mounted in a rotating bearing. A method is described which does not need rotation to center the elements. The advantages and requirements of such systems are analyzed.
