Author Affiliations +
AMOS S.A. has developed a 2.6 m wide field telescope for the “Observatorio Astrofisico de Javalambre”. The leading edge performance of this telescope has not only required an extensive work of design, analysis and optimization but also a mastered fabrication process and an appropriate AIV plan. The telescope has successfully passed the factory test and is installed at the observatory on the “Pico del Buitre” in Spain. This paper aims to present the philosophy of the test, the results and the current status after installation. AMOS has gained since more than 30 years a huge experience in testing small and large instruments, including optical testing, alignment, mechanical static, dynamic measurements, system identification, etc. It is this combination of various techniques of measurement that produce accurate and reliable results which are a key element of a successful project.
