10 August 2010 Update and image quality error budget for the LSST camera optical design
Author Affiliations +
The Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) uses a novel, three-mirror, modified Paul-Baker design, with an 8.4-meter primary mirror, a 3.4-m secondary, and a 5.0-m tertiary feeding a refractive camera design with 3 lenses (0.69-1.55m) and a set of broadband filters/corrector lenses. Performance is excellent over a 9.6 square degree field and ultraviolet to near infrared wavelengths. We describe the image quality error budget analysis methodology which includes effects from optical and optomechanical considerations such as index inhomogeneity, fabrication and null-testing error, temperature gradients, gravity, pressure, stress, birefringence, and vibration.
