Abstract : This article introduces tne main errors associated with the 1.26m infrared telescope after it left the factory. It makes use of harmonic analysis methods to separate the various primary error terms associated with the telescope (2m display error, 4m17s short period tracking errors, as well as long period tracking errors, and so on). It discusses error producing factors and calculates theoretical values for errors given rise to by these causes. In conjunction with this, it carries out comparisons with actually measured values, analyses the influences on telescope utilization precision, and describes methods for eliminating the errors as well as actual results.
