  • Q1: Why deploy <i>N</i> wavefront sensors on a three mirror anastigmat (TMA) and not <i>N</i> + 1? Q2: Why measure <i>M</i> Zernike coefficients and not <i>M</i> + 1? Q3: Why control <i>L</i> rigid body degrees of freedom (total) on the secondary and tertiary and not<i> L</i> + 1? The usual answer: “We did a lot of ray tracing and <i>N</i>, <i>M</i>, and <i>L</i> seemed OK.” We show how straightforward results from aberration theory may be used to address these questions. We consider, in… CONTINUE READING
