Abstract

The AZT-22 telescope installed in Turkey (Antalia) was aligned and tested on stars by the Hartmann method. The rms normal deviation of an equivalent optical system is 0.040 +/- 0.016 mum. The circle of confusion is 0.40 +/- 0.04 arcsec in diameter at a 50% energy level. (C) 2001 MAIK "Nauka/Interperiodica".
