Exit pupil

(Science: microscopy) The exit pupil of a lens system is an image of the entrance pupil (hence conjugate to it) and normally should be the image of the limiting diaphragm. In both the microscope and the telescope it is the eyepoint where the beam has its smallest cross-section. It is also called the ramsden circle or eyepoint.
