Abstract:

The procedures described are used in the construction and development of a 60-inch aperture lunar laser telescope at low cost. These procedures were based on a previous development at this Laboratory of inexpensive photometric telescopes of 60-inch aperture. The adaptation of these techniques to the more severe requirements of a lunar laser telescope has presented difficult problems. In addition, a modified telescope mounting had to be constructed, a special guider, and a dome with associated living quarters located on Mt. Lemmon, elev. 9160 ft. Author
