Abstract: We show that for any rotationally symmetric projection with a single virtual viewpoint, it is possible to design a two mirror rotationally symmetric system which realizes the projection exactly. These mirror pairs are derived from two coupled differential equations. We give examples where the projections from the sphere at infinity are stereographic, perspective and equiresolution.
