The dove prism is widely used in periscopes and other optical instruments to rotate the image azimuth in the field of view. The dove prism is compared to another image rotating prism. The comparison is in respect of the base length of the prism and the area required to pass a given beam width. Both the prisms have three polished sides, which are made of a single piece of glass, and have to be used in collimated light and hence the comparison.
