1). 2 Technical Realization A new camera system has been implemented into CONICA consisting of a f/40 camera and a special quadrant ﬁlter just in front of the focal plane (see Fig. 1). 1% reﬂection losses per lens. Special care has been taken to make sure that imaging errors are below the diﬀraction limit, to minimize the diﬀerential static aberrations between the four PSFs. To avoid variation of the PSF over the detector array, high imaging quality all over the chip is required. The theoretical Strehl ratio is better than 95% all over the FOV.
