Abstract
It is well known that off-axis testing of a spherical surface introduces aberrations, mainly primary astigmatism. The magnitudes of these aberrations are discussed and analytically calculated. Their influence in several testing configurations is discussed. A case of particular interest is when a linear carrier fringe pattern is used in a Fizeau interferometer.
