Abstract
Control systems and structural analysis technologies have advanced to a level where top-down design optimization can be realized for large optical telescopes. Although design criteria have continually progressed, only recently has prior experience been enhanced through the use of high-speed processor technologies and advanced, simulation modeling design tools. Thus, optimization of the complete electromechanical structure makes possible a cost effective, yet high performance, telescope design. The iterative process of selecting controls and mount structure, modeling, astronomer requirements and refinements are explored to demonstrate an optimized solution.
