A system for proton radiography that includes an accelerator pipe configured to direct protons to a scintillator configured to receive the protons from the accelerator pipe and in response thereto generate light emissions which form an image. A pellicle reflects the image from the scintillator to a lens assembly having a first end and a second end. The first end is configured to receive the image from the pellicle. The lens assembly includes a movable lens group which provides a variable magnification function to provide a magnified image from the lens assembly. A housing is configured to support the lens assembly and the housing includes a movable rail on which the movable lens group moves to achieve the zoom function. A camera is arranged at the second end of the lens group and is configured to receive and record the magnified image.
