One of the critical elements in the Four Laser Guide Star Facility (4LGSF) for the ESO Very Large Telescope (VLT) is the Optical Tube Assembly (OTA), consisting of a stable 20x laser beam expander and an active tip/tilt mirror, the Field Selector Mechanism (FSM). This paper describes the design and performance testing of the FSM. The driving requirement for the FSM is its large stroke of ±6.1 mrad, in combination with less than 1.5 µrad RMS absolute accuracy. The FSM design consists of adoi:10.1117/12.893682 fatcat:iafah65hxbha5erhalfe6jsyim
