The Vacuum Mires of the Transit Instrument at Nikolaev

  • G. M. Petrov, R. T. Fedorova and P. N. Fedorov

Abstract

At Nikolaev, in 1978, a system for the improvement in the stability of the light path between the transit instrument and the meridian mires was designed. Its purpose is to improve the accuracy of the azimuth determination and that of the collimation. This system consists of twelve sections of 8 mm thick steel tube with 160 mm diameter, each nine meters long. These tubes are lying in special steel cradles which rest on brick support columns spaced 8 meters apart, and these can be moved vertically and horizontally by 100 mm and 50 mm, respectively. Thus it is possible to align the axis of the tube exactly.
