Abstract
Six telescope truss geometries are evaluated for both wind and gravity deflection stiffness. The existence of simultaneous solutions for gravity and wind deflections is demonstrated. A baseline design for the Texas 7.6-meter telescope with an F/1.4 Angel lightweight borosilicate primary mirror is shown.
