Alignment telescope and accessories

Organizational Unit

The Taylor-Hobson alignment telescope is an auto-collimator that allows high-precision optomechanical alignments. Its intrinsic error is below 3 seconds of arc and has a large set of targets and accessories, allowing great versatility. Currently we have two units of this alignment telescope.
