Abstract
We describe an approach for mounting the approximately 0.8 m diameter optical elements in a refractive corrector for the Multiple Mirror Telescope (MMT). The optical elements are mounted on discrete pads of RTV rubber to an Invar/carbon steel cell. Following the conversion of the MMT to use a single 6.5 m primary mirror, the corrector will provide up to a 1 degree(s) diameter field-of-view for multi-object spectroscopy with optical fibers or for wide- field imaging.
