Mirror mounts enable rapid alignment

The OS-Z range of mirror mounts from Optical Surfaces Ltd. provides ultra stable, stress-free mounting and rapid alignment of off-axis parabolic, spherical and flat mirrors as well as wedge back and parallel back mirrors.  Constructed in black anodised aluminium, six models of OS-Z mount provide a secure, stable and compact platform for mirror diameters ranging from 90 to 250mm.

Angular alignment can be made about two axes by means of dual action adjusters with fine screw and ultra-fine differential micrometre action.

Using these mounts it is possible to align a mirror within a few arc seconds. Each mirror mount comes with a base plate.

As an option to the standard two-axis gimbal micrometre-driven action, OS-Z mounts can be fitted with x-y-z linear stages if required.

This option allows users to control positioning of mirrors in up to five-degrees of freedom.
