Paper Abstract

A tracking telescope designed, built and tested by Perkin-Elmer contains several unique mechanical design solutions that may be applied to other types of equipment with similar design requirements. Three design areas that required special approaches include an azimuth overtravel stop mechanism permitting +190 degrees of motion, a drive system with very low gear-induced errors and zero backlash and a cable wrap system.
