1.0M Ultralight telescope mirror support analysis

The following link is to Ian Bakers mirror support analysis for a 1.0M telescope using a very thin mirror.

The telescope will be of ultralight design and be fully protable for public outreach as the TROK 30 inch telescope is. The 1.0M telescope willprobably be the largest portable telescope in Europe and one of the largest in the world.

We hope to develop this design over the next few months in 2008 and build the telescope in 2009 after the 30 inch TRO telescope and 20 inch telescopes are completed.
