An optical projector having different magnifications, 5× and 50×, in two rectangular directions is described. Although the device is designed principally for rapid measurement of cloud‐chamber track curvatures, it has been applied to various situations in which plane‐to‐plane imaging at constant magnification is desired. Simple plano‐convex cylindrical lenses are used as the image‐forming elements. These give quite satisfactory linearity and resolution at the maximum magnification.
