Still pictures from the Geometrical Optics TOP module

Note: Click on the thumbnails to see the full-sized images.

In the images below, an object (five point sources in the shape of a "tee") is outside the focal point of a converging lens. The images depict the scanning of an observation screen from a position close to object to the position for which the observation screen coincides with the image plane.

In the three sets of images below, a teapot object is imaged on an observation screen for three different orientations of the teapot.
