Hello, so, I was finetuning the infinity focus of my Gatling, and I noticed that the axis that starts out wider is actually the less divergent axis, and the initially smaller axis is actually the more divergent axis. Is this normal? I can't wrap my head around why this would happen, I believed that because the initially wider axis was so because it has a higher divergence. How does a lens reverse this? I assumed that the lens reduces the divergence of both axes equally, so eventually the narrower axis would be perfectly focused while the wider axis would still diverge. Sorry if this is a stupid question.
