  Zoom and Multi-Configuration

Any parameter in OpTaliX may be specified for multi-configuration (zoom) systems. Fixed-focus (i.e. "non-zoomed") systems are special cases of the general multi-configuration concept. For instance, "zoomable" data are wavelength, system and surface apertures, fields, radii of curvature, axial separations, tilt and decenter values, and glass types, to name just a few.

Multiple positions may be optimized simultaneously, where each position may have its own merit function.
Zoom/multiconfiguration positions can be plotted with individual X/Y-offsets, giving full control of the plot layout. Zero offsets perfectly overlay all positions.
