Paper Abstract

A wind pressures PSD measured on the Gemini South Telescope was applied to the FEA model of the LSST telescope to determine the RMS motions of the principal optical systems. These motions were then converted to the time domain. The time domain motions were analyzed in the ZEMAX® software to determine the wind induced image degradation. This degradation was shown to be tolerable.
