Abstract
The 4-meter Multi-Object Spectroscopic Telescope (4MOST) is a wide-field, high-multiplex spectroscopic survey facility under development for the Visible and Infrared Survey Telescope for Astronomy (VISTA) of the European Southern Observatory (ESO). The primary and secondary mirrors (M1 and M2) together with the Wide Field Corrector (WFC) system provide a pupil-centric and aberration corrected focal surface. The WFC is also an integral part of the metrology system. At the focal surface, we meet two wave front sensing (WFS) systems, a deployable camera at commissioning, an acquisition and guiding (A and G) unit and a secondary guiding unit. This paper provides an overview of design details and Manufacture, Assembly, Integration and Verification (MAIV) processes for the 4MOST WFC system.
