Abstract

A null corrector to test 8.4 m paraboloidal mirrors is presented. A diamond turned aspheric mirror that in conjunction with a hologram provides null corrector certifying redundancy. Introducing redundancy in certification approach permit null corrector to be properly adjusted despite tight tolerances.
