    I'm trying to figure out the intensity of light in different sections of a 2d airy disk from a point source, but I'm not sure how to calculate it. Does anyone have any good sources?

    Thanks Jtbell. I actually found that about an hour or so after I posted lol.
    I'll look up that Bessel Function calculator, thanks for suggesting it.
