Abstract:
There are quite a few things to do in Hamburg besides looking at the stars, but apparently still not enough. We can fit in a bit more after work. A Staft Association meeting was therefore held one sunny morning at the end of August to consider this and some graver matters.

A New Method for the Alignment of Large Telescopes

ADS BibCode:
1974Msngr...2R...3.
Author(s)/Affiliation(s):
ESO
AA(ESO)
Abstract:
The full advantages of a large telescope of high optical quality can be achieved only if the optical elements are perfectly aligned. Lateral displacements of the two mirror axes of a Ritchey-Chretien system by a few tenths of a millimetre due to flexure under the unavoidable influence of gravity in different positions of the telescope already show an effect on the quality of the astronomical results, although they are normally not detectable during the time of observation.

Abstract:
A Chilean Government commission visited La Silla at the end of May in connection with measures that might someday be required to protect the scientific observations from air pollution. Such pollution might result from mining or other operations in the area or from misuse of the La Silla airspace by aircraft.
