No. They are all "real" images.


Unless you define "virtual" much more carefully, or precisely with respect to the apparatus, its common definition is something that is not really there.

We can have a "virtual" experiment - all numbers but no real objects, or a "virtual reality" as an imagined set of interactive parameters. But an image is either there or not, except possibly in the imagination as opposed to the physical world.

Thus, wherever we see it, or however our apparatus manipulates it, it is a REAL IMAGE, not a "virtual" one.
