Abstract
For spectroscopic observations with a segmented mirror 28- meter telescope, an alternative to image slicing of a single composite image is to separate the 141 images and stack the unsliced images from the segments along the slit of the spectrograph where an array of micro optics redirects the beams from the segments to superimpose on the grating of a spectrograph. The focal length of the collimator can then be increased in proportion to the square root of the number of beams, resulting in a proportional increase in the slit width without loss of spectral resolution. An additional advantage is that the longer focus collimator introduces less aberration and can be used off-axis thus avoiding central obstruction near the grating. Following the collimator, an aspherized grating, developed by Gerard Lemaitre and manufactured by Jobin-Yvon, has the advantage of minimizing the number of optical surfaces in a spectrograph.
