Paper Abstract

We present the results of the optical characterization of the mirrors of the telescope of 62cm observatory "SEVERO DIAZ GALINDO" property of the University of Guadalajara. We use the Ronchi test and a spherometer to measure by first time, the radius of curvature for the primary and secondary mirror, the parameters of the telescope system were obtained by using the commercial software ZEMAX. We confirm that both mirrors are adequate to work in the telescope configuration and to do optical astronomy.
