Hypercentric Transmission in Microscopic Objective

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“The intersection of the principal rays lies in front of the object, and consequently objects in front of the plane focused for will be projected on E magnified and the objects lying behind it diminished ("hypercentric” transmission). It produces a perspective representation entirely opposed to ordinary vision.” —Encyclopaedia Britannica, 1910
