Abstract. A model for alignment of multi-element mirror of high-aperture telescopes is proposed. Relations for estimating the composite mirror adjustment accuracy are obtained on the base of the introduced concept of difference surface, with the use of developed algorithms of geometrical and optical-technical positioning of mirror segments.
Keywords: telescope, primary mirror, aperture, wavefront, normal, optical engineering, positioning, algorithm, model
