Large Viewing Area

  1. Nov 26, 2012 #1
    Hello,

    Is it possible by using one or combination of more lenses to magnify the viewing area.

    What do you mean by a "large viewing area"? Given even a single lens you can achieve a magnified image, and odds are given a few constraints like yours you can use geometrical optics to find a pair of lenses that might work.

    Edit: After taking a closer look at your diagram it's looking like you want to image a 10" dia. area down to 1" (10:1 magnification), but the overall object-image distance is only 2". This sounds like it's just not possible using real-world optics (even fresnel optics) given the incident angles involved.
