The aberrations of optical systems formed by spherical surfaces whose centers coincide and lie on coincident object and image planes are analyzed. Formulas are obtained for estimating the aberrations of a broad meridional beam and the distortion. It is shown that, when certain conditions are satisfied, the circle of confusion for off-axis image points can acquire a shape close to rectangular and square in such systems. © 2005 Optical Society of America
