A two-step holographic process is introduced to fabricate a cylindrical multiplex hologram as an image-plane hologram. By adoption of the achromatic angle in the process the hologram is capable of generating an achromatic image. The most important factors, the location as well as the width of the viewing slits, that affect the quality of the observed image are analyzed and discussed. The change of aspect ratio for the observed image as a function of the viewing distance is theoretically and numerically analyzed. This method can not only eliminate the annoying picket-fence effect but can also increase the vertical viewing range for the observer. Computer simulations as well as experimental results are provided.
