Paper Abstract

EOS Technologies has completed four 1.8m telescopes that are to be used in the NASA/JPL Interferometer. The 1.8m telescopes (Outriggers) will form the workhorse of the interferometric system. This paper presents some of the performance data obtained during the Telescope Factory Acceptance Tests showing some of the best telescope performance ever achieved with a telescope of this class.
