Paper Abstract

The NNTT will be a multiple mirror telescope consisting of an array of four 7.5-meter telescopes to be coaligned and cophased by means of an internal optical metering device. As a result, the NNTT acts like a single telescope with a 15-meter collecting diameter and a 21-meter resolution diameter. This paper describes the coalignment/cophasing system.
