9 July 2018 Magdalena Ridge Observatory interferometer: UT#1 site installation, alignment and test
Author Affiliations +
The deployment of the Magdalena Ridge Observatory Interferometer has resumed in 2016. AMOS, in charge of the development of the unit telescopes, has completed the installation of the first telescope on the Ridge. The compactness of the system allows for a fast installation, as only the optics and their supports need to be transported in separate crates. The installation has been followed by the alignment procedure combining metrological and optical measurement techniques and aiming at optimizing the pupil stability and image quality. Finally, the performance of the telescope has been evaluated on the sky as part of the site acceptance.
