A model for simulations of the dynamical behavior of the Large Earth-based Solar Telescope (LEST) is described. The model includes the various subsystems of the telescope optics and mechanics, as well as its live optics system. Also, various disturbances, including wind gusts and atmospheric turbulence, are included. The simulation results indicate the fundamental importance of the live optics system of the telescope.
