Paper Abstract

The primary mirror selected for the Gemini 8-m Telescopes is a thin meniscus made of Corning ULETM glass. The conceptual design of the Gemini support system has evolved in response to the properties of the meniscus mirror and the functional requirements of the Gemini Telescopes. This paper describes the design requirements, the design features, and predicted performance of this system.
