27 June 2006 Flexure mounts for high-performance astronomical lenses
Author Affiliations +
We have developed practical, high performance flexure mounts for large astronomical lenses in the Binospec spectrograph. Flexure mounts are an attractive alternative to the widely used elastomeric lens mounts when high axial stiffness is a priority and coupling fluids are incompatible with elastomers. We describe coupling fluid seals for the flexure mounts.
