Abstract
In this paper, the characteristics of a mount for secondary mirror of an astronomical telescope are presented. The mount has five freedom degrees. The control allows to focus with errors of +/- 1 micron and to align with inclinations and displacements with error of +/- 3.48 arcsec and +/- 8.3 micron respectively. The optical tests are presented before and after placing this mount, as well as control electronics and mechanical details.
