Paper Abstract

The Optical Science Center North Rhine-Westphalia has developed LIDAR telescopes with mirror diameters of 1150, 1500, and 1800 m. The telescopes are intended for use in the Arctic and must withstand extreme weather conditions. In addition, the parallelism of the transmitted and received beam paths must be maintained under all circumstances. It will be shown how, due to the design principle, these requirements have been fulfilled at moderate cost.
