2 August 2000 Automated telescope enclosure for the CHARA array
Author Affiliations +
A unique set of instrument enclosures was implemented as part of an interferometric array now in place atop Mt. Wilson, California. These enclosures were designed in response to project criteria set forth in the planning phases of a new project by the Center for High Angular Resolution Astronomy at Georgia State University. The array is intended for high resolution imaging at optical and infrared wavelengths and is comprised of six 1-m diameter telescopes arranged in a Y-shaped configuration with a maximum baseline of approximately 350 m.
