Abstract
We present calculation schemes for the attainment of isoplanatic imaging on the optical axis using aspherical surfaces. The consequences of the isoplanatic condition for the illumination over the cross-section of an imaging beam are considered. The variation of the useful image volume as a function of the isoplanatic prescription is illustrated by a few examples. Finally, we present a calculation scheme to attain stigmatic imaging over a ring field area.
