Abstract
The in-orbit imaging performance of the three X-ray telescopes on board of the X-ray astronomy observatory XMM- Newton is presented and compared with the performance measured on ground at the MPE PANTER test facility. The comparison shows an excellent agreement the on ground and in-orbit performance.
