The purpose of providing this IRT is to counter- rotate the table to compensate for the focal
plane image rotation caused by the alt-azimuth telescope mount movement. This IRT table will have
servo controlled optical benches fixed on to its floor. Optical instruments are assembled
on these optical benches which are aligned w.r.to the focused beam coming after mirror M7.
IRT system will have stiff structure to support instruments tables and a false floor with suitable
vibration isolation for personnel working around the instruments.
Base structure of IRT is constructed from large structural members (wide flange and box beams).
The instruments loads are carried on re-locatable instrument support beam underneath the false floor.
The bearing system is similar to azimuth track and bearing system that has been proposed for
the telescope mount (i.e., R-Guide instead of conventional Hydrostatic bearing).
