The intensity distribution in phase space of an X-ray synchrotron radiation beamline was measured using a pinhole camera method, in order to verify astigmatism compensation by a Fresnel zone plate focusing optical system. The beamline is equipped with a silicon double crystal monochromator. The beam size and divergence at an arbitrary distance were estimated. It was found that the virtual source point was largely different between the vertical and horizontal directions, which is probably caused by thermal distortion of the monochromator crystal. The result is consistent with our astigmatism compensation by inclining a Fresnel zone plate.
