Paper Abstract

AMOS SA has been awarded of the contract for the design, manufacturing, assembly, tests and on site installation (Nainital, Devasthal site at 2540 mm altitude) of the 3,6 m Optical Telescope for ARIES (Aryabhatta Research Institute of Observational Sciences), Nainital (India). This paper describes the opto-mechanical design of this telescope and presents the solutions adopted by AMOS to meet the specific requirements. The telescope has a Ritchey-Chrétien optical configuration with a Cassegrain focus equipped with one axial port and two side ports. The primary mirror is a meniscus active mirror.
