The ROSAT point spread functions for the instruments XRT-PSPC, XRT-HRI, (XUV telescope)-WFC in pointing mode as well as the ROSAT survey point spread functions are documented. A series of plots exhibits the point spread function models. Commands dedicated and calibration tables related to point spread functions are explained. The internet addresses for the accompanying documentation are given.

Key words: X-ray: general, space vehicles: instrumentation: detectors
