Abstract
The AURA Gemini Project Office proposed a mild steel closed cell structure to support the Primary mirror for the 8 meter Optical telescope. This paper deals the fabrication requirements, the method of construction, and the assembly of such a structure. The final assembly of all the actuators, other equipment including the testing of the complete mirror cell using a special concrete mirror is considered.
