Paper Abstract

LAMOST is a reflecting Schmidt telescope that lies on the ground. It is consists of three main parts: Schmidt plate- MA, spherical primary mirror MB and focal plane unit. Its optical axis is on the meridian plane with a 25- degree inclination to the horizontal that is different to traditional telescope. Therefore LAMOST enclosure will be consists of two parts accordant: the dome enclosure of MA and the tunnel enclosure from focus to MB. This paper describes the major design consideration of the LAMOST enclosures, that featured with a better seeing performance, a good wind buffet function and an acceptable optical baffle, its structure are more simple with good operability and maintainability.
