Paper Abstract

For superior land based astronomy locations such as Mauna Kea, Cerro-Tololo and Mt. Graham, all precautions must be taken to preserve the high quality of the seeing. In addition to the floor cooling and well insulated domes, it is essential to extract heat generated within the telescope. The critical locations are hydrostatic pads, the cassegrain station, prime focus cage, and telescope's tube cross head.
