Abstract
The support system of the primary mirror of 2.1m telescope at SPM allows correction of some optical aberrations. A low cost Active Optics System (AOS) can be developed based on this property of the support system. Within the preliminary development of this system, computer simulations were being performed. The general propose of simulations was to find the optimal scheme for the wavefront control of the primary mirror. This paper presents results for the wavefront sensor of the AOS proposed for the 2.1m telescope at San Pedro Martir.
