Abstract
The "Polarization Fidelity" Tracking Mount Optical Geometry describes an Az El tracking mount and relay mirror geometry, which maintains a high degree of polarization fidelity for a telescope image, passing through the gimbal, to a stationary sensor package outside the mount. The paper models and compares this geometry to an standard Az El mount using ZEMAX.
