Paper Abstract

The diffractive performance of large segmented telescope mirrors is discussed with particular emphasis on understanding the PSF structure of arrays of hexagonal and circular mirrors. Discriminating issues needed to select mirror size and array are discussed and one solution is proposed as it has been studied for the Canada France Hawaii Telescope.
