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.
