The Nancay telescope is a transit telescope of the Kraus type, consisting of a fixed spherical reflector (referred to as the primary reflector) and a tiltable flat reflector. The spherical reflector has a vertical aperture that is D/sub x/=34.6 m high and D/sub y/=200 m wide, and the paraxial focus is located on the ground F=279.9 m in front of the centre of the primary. The tiltable flat reflector is located about 560 m in front of the primary, and the purpose of it is to redirect the… CONTINUE READING
