Paper Abstract

The Multiple Mirror Telescope (MMD on Mt. Hopkins AZ, which uses an array of six telescopes on a single mount to achieve an effective aperture of 4.5-rn, is to be converted to a 6.5-rn telescope with a single prirnary. This paper describes the objectives, constraints, and solutions for a conceptual design of the Optics Support Structure (OSS) for the 6.5-rn telescope.
