Abstract

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. Second, a convenient way of building a telescope model (in this case
NuSTAR) with many similar optical elements scripted using a 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.
