Paper Abstract

The European Solar Telescope (EST) is a European collaborative project to build a 4m class solar telescope in the Canary Islands, which is now in its design study phase. The telescope will provide diffraction limited performance for several instruments observing simultaneously at the Coudé focus at different wavelengths. This paper summarizes the work performed by IDOM, in the concept design of Transfer Optics system comprising the optomechanics and seeing control of the optical train and surrounding area. Additionally, the possibility of using the Transfer Optics system to compensate the field rotation is currently under study. This work has been performed with the support of the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) of the European Union.
