Paper Abstract

We have constructed a 1-m-diam holographically corrected membrane mirror telescope for optical imaging. Several thousand waves of surface error were removed using a corrective hologram, resulting in near diffraction-limited performance. A detailed discussion of the mirror, the corrective process, and the performance of the final telescope are included.
