Paper Abstract

The telescope of the most common form of gimbaled star tracker is aimed to encompass a target star within its field of view, and then servo-controlled to point its optical axis precisely at the star. The servo error signals, representing angular separation between telescope optical axis and star line of sight, must be reduced to negligible values before star coordinate data can be extracted.
