Paper Abstract

We analyze the feasibility of replacing hexagonal mirror segments with the circular ones in the very large telescopes, requiring the approximately same performance in the spatial frequency domain. The potential advantage of circular segments is their easier fabrication and a decreased amount of stray light contribution from the edges.
