Noncollinear emission occurs in a free running type I parametric oscillator beyond the theoretical tuning curve for collinear oscillation. The noncollinear emission is described in terms of the emission angle and the corresponding angle of divergence. Experimentally recorded single captures of the transverse profile for the noncollinear regime are presented. A theoretical description of the degenerate tuning is described to explain the noncollinear regime.
