AstroSystems Parabolic Primary Mirror Cells
AstroSystems primary mirror cell frames are all steel, of welded construction for strength and rigidity. These premium quality cells have a computer designed mirror flotation system that uses 18 points on 16.0" and larger mirrors, or 9 points for the 12.5" and 14.5" mirror sizes. The flotation points are of Teflon over cork, allowing the primary mirror to truly "float." This approach thermally isolates the primary and cushions it for worry free travel.
