Paper Abstract

We present the results of a modification performed in the optical system of the 62 cm telescope (f/14.32) at observatory “Severo Díaz Galindo” Universidad de Guadalajara, Mexico. This modification consists of a change of distance between the primary and secondary mirrors from 1020 to 1135 mm. With this, a change in the image plane from 5200 mm to 600 mm, measured from the vertex of the primary mirror, is obtained. The latter allow to get the first astronomical images of The Telescope. This modification was necessary because alignment errors, such as distance between primary and secondary mirrors in the original system were presented. Besides, the telescope has a new accurate and adequate mechanical system installed on November 2011. Details and the first images obtained, are here presented.
