Paper Abstract

In order to improve the stability of the secondary mirror mounting structure and reduce the influence of the position change of the secondary mirror on the imaging quality of the camera, the secondary mirror support structure was studied. Aiming at the problems of traditional secondary mirror support, a new type of secondary mirror bracket is proposed in this paper. The finite element analysis results show that under the same obstruction ratio, the torsional stiffness, the stiffness along the optical axis and the thermodynamic properties of the new secondary mirror bracket are similar to the secondary mirror traditional support structure, but the weight of the new s bracket is only 15.2% of the traditional support structure. The new bracket solves the shortcomings of the traditional secondary mirror support structure, such as high cost, long period and heavy weight, and is easy to assemble. It has been successfully applied in the all-day star orientation instrument.
