We present a number of example studies of telescope optics using the latest version of the AstroX add on toolbox for McXtrace. Among which are first, a benchmark study of effective area and vignetting for the Chandra X-ray Observatory which we find to match well with literature. Second, a convenient way of building a telescope model (in this case NuSTAR) with many similar optical elements scripted using python module. This lends itself well to be included in online notebooks and/or for teaching. Third, we show a new AstroX module for lobster eye optics, and fourth, a study of the proposed solar axion telescope BabyIAXO.
