30 January 2003 PMAS telescope module: optomechanical design and manufacture
Author Affiliations +
PMAS, the Potsdam Multi-Aperture Spectrophotometer, has a modular layout which was intended to provide for flexible operation as a travelling instrument and to accomodate different telescopes. The Telescope Module is the part of the instrument which serves the purpose of mechanical and optical interfacing to the telescope. It contains optical systems to re-image the telescope focal plane onto the lens array, to illuminate the lens array from an internal calibration light source, and to observe an area around the 3D spectroscopy field-of-view with a cryogenic CCD system for acquisition, guiding, and for the simultaneous determination of point-spread-function templates for 3D deconvolution. We discuss the opto-mechanical design and manufacture of these subsystems.
