Paper Abstract

To achieve the high degree of pointing accuracy required for a large space telescope, and to maintain this accuracy over an observa-tion time that may be hours in length, it has long been obvious that the guiding optics must include the main telescope system. Insurmount able boresighting problems would result from using auxiliary pointing optics.
