1 November 1997 Using the Shack-Hartmann system for a complete analysis of optical telescopes
Author Affiliations +
We have developed a SHack-Hartmann system, which has been extensively used to test various telescope around the world over the past 5 years. In this paper we describe the instrument and the software, and indicate how they have been used to measure the optical aberrations in terms of coma, spherical aberration etc. We also show how our system can be used to identify less obvious problems like telescope support errors and dome and mirror seeing.
