Paper Abstract

High resolution spectra are required to complement the angular dimensions of pulsating stars and binary systems determined with the Sydney University Stellar Interferometer. To meet this need a multiple mirror telescope feeding a spectrograph via optical fibers is being developed. The design has been inspired by the Multi- Telescope Telescope project at Georgia State University but much of the design of the Sydney University Multiple Mirror Telescope is new. In particular, an adjustable mirror cell has been designed to allow the accurate alignment of the starlight on the input end of the fiber in its focal plane. Alignment tests carried out on a prototype cell are reported.
