The DFM Engineering team have
considerable experience handling large
optics typically used in telescopes.
We have engineered mirror handling systems to safely allow technicians to remove, reinstall, and collimate
The mirror handling equipment often consists of hoists, mirror insertion tools, carts, crates, lift tables,
slings, and fixtures.
We have provided mirror handling systems specifically designed for the size and configuration of the optics
in our telescopes and to work within the available space in the observatory.
