Magdalena Ridge Observatory – MROi
The Magdalena Ridge Observatory Interferometer (MROI) is a high-sensitivity imaging optical/IR interferometer in construction on the Magdalena Ridge mountain of Socorro in New Mexico. Up to ten “unit telescopes” will be displaceable on an equilateral “Y” shape array providing snapshot imaging capabilities with a sub-milliarcsecond resolution. The telescopes can be relocated on 28 stations distant of 7.5 m to 350 m.

The high sensitivity is obtained thanks to the innovative configuration for the 1.4 m unit telescopes. The telescope consists in a Mersenne beam compressor supported onto an elevation over elevation mount. The 95 mm diameter output collimated beam is sent through the outer elevation mount by a tertiary mirror articulated around the inner elevation axis.

MAST - Multi Application Solar Telescope
The Multi Application Solar Telescope (MAST) is a 50 cm diameter class telescope, designed, manufactured, assembled and installed on site for the Udaipur Solar Observatory (USO) in India. Despite its limited size, the telescope is expected to be competitive with respect to worldwide large and costly projects thanks to its versatility regarding science goals and also thanks to its demanding opto mechanical specification. Especially, and beside the obvious solar constraints, the telescope – optically based on an off axis gregorian afocal configuration integrated on an Alt. Az. mechanical mount – is required to deal with specific thermal control in order to avoid any seeing degradation, while facing unfriendly environment with fast and large temperature variations.
