Multiple-Mirror Telescope

Definitions

Astronomy

  • Telescope on Mount Hopkins in Arizona which used six 183cm mirrors to imitate a single 6m mirror. The development of the MMT led to multiple mirrors becoming an accepted part of telescope technology, although the MMT mirrors themselves were later replaced by a single 6.5m mirror.
