Abstract
The Giant Magellan Telescope (GMT), one of several next generation Extremely Large Telescopes (ELTs), is a 25.4 meter diameter altitude over azimuth design set to be built at the summit of Cerro Campánas at the Las Campánas Observatory in Chile. This paper describes the current status of the GMT enclosure structure and mechanisms design as it evolves in the current preliminary design phase.
