series of Mirror Mounts from Optical Surfaces Ltd are designed to provide
a secure platform for high precision flat, spherical and off-axis mirrors in
applications where stability is important.
Constructed in black anodized aluminum - OS-100,
Mirror Mounts provide a secure and stable platform for mirrors of 100-250mm
in diameter. Angular alignment can be made about two axes by means of dual action
adjusters with fine screw and ultra-fine differential micrometer action. Using
these mounts it is possible to rapidly align a mirror within a few arc seconds.
To facilitate rapid and simple mounting onto an optical table or other support
each mirror mount comes with a base plate.
series mounts provide high performance for larger mirrors in applications
where stability of pointing is important. The robust OS
300-600 mounts are available in four standard sizes giving optical apertures
from 305 mm (12 inches) to 550 mm (21.6 inches). To ensure operational versatility
& flexibility all mirror mounts provide precise micrometer screw adjustment
about both vertical and horizontal axes. Various motorised mount options are
also available to suit applications in hostile environments or where limited
space makes manual adjustment difficult.
