Abstract
The article describes the method of testing the absolute profile of large-sized astronomical mirrors grinded aspherical surface and the method of test the aspherical surface decentering relative to the astronomical mirror geometrical center by means of a linear three-point spherometer, which is subsequently moved perpendicular to the direction from the optical surface center to the edge, as well as the method of positioning the interface elements being glued.
