Hello,

I am trying to model focus to focus imaging with an elliptical miror in optica and have trouble defining the elliptical mirror (a mirror that has different radii of curvature in the two surface dimensions).
So far I have tried using two cylindrical mirrors with different focal length sitting in the same position (and twisted 90 with respect to each other, but this does not seem to work properly...)

Does anybody know how to do this properly?

Thanks in advance
