Manufacturing high precision mild cylinders


Part of the project for ESO Paranal Observatory: Manufacturing, Test and Delivery of Mirrors for the Coudé Train of the Auxiliary Telescopes

The cylindrical mirror is one element in the Coudé train used for astigmatism compensation in the system. The goal of the project was to minimize the surface error much below full aperture specification to test technology limitations.
