Paper Abstract

The Solar Optical Telescope (SOT) is a shuttle-borne telescope that will point deep ultraviolet science instruments at the sun with sub-arc second stability. The telescope will be actively aligned in orbit while viewing the sun. This paper describes the unique active compensation techniques used on SOT to satisfy the on-orbit resolution requirements.
