Paper Abstract

Optical alignment is very important in the commitment of a telescope. In this paper, the 2 meter class telescope of the Institute of Optics and Electronics, the Chinese Academy of Sciences is taken for example. The common alignment procedure and method of large telescopes are described, and the project method of getting better image quality in all the field of view is also included. The alignment procedure mainly includes the coarse alignment and the accurate adjustment. The method can be applied to the optical systems such as Cassegrain and R-C.
