Paper Abstract

The rotational part of the enclosure of SUBARU telescope (Japan National Large Telescope, or JNLT) is under the fabrication in Canada, and on-site erection is scheduled to take place in May, 1994, with the expected completion in the third quarter of 1995. The enclosure is featured with various design consideration for a better seeing performance, a better wind buffet performance, and good operability and maintainability. This paper describes the major design consideration behind the final shape and function of the enclosure and the current status of its fabrication.
