|Issue Date:||2016||Volume:||Ground-based and Airborne Telescopes VI||Editors:||Hall, Helen J.; Gilmozzi, Roberto; Marshall, Heather K.||Series:||PROCEEDINGS OF SPIE||Number:||9906||First Page:||990619||Abstract:||ASTRI SST-2M is an end-to-end telescope prototype developed by the Italian National Institute of Astrophysics (INAF) in the framework of the Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA). The CTA observatory, with a combination of large-, medium-, and small-sized telescopes (LST, MST and SST, respectively), will represent the next generation of imaging atmospheric Cherenkov telescopes. It will explore the very high-energy domain from a few tens of GeV up to few hundreds of TeV. The ASTRI SST-2M telescope structure and mirrors have been installed at the INAF observing station at Serra La Nave, on Mt. Etna (Sicily, Italy) in September 2014. Its performance verification phase began in autumn 2015. Part of the scheduled activities foresees the study and characterization of the optical and opto-mechanical performance of the telescope prototype. In this contribution we report the results achieved in terms of kinematic model analysis, mirrors reflectivity evolution, telescopes positioning, flexures and pointing model and the thermal behavior.||Conference Name:||Ground-based and Airborne Telescopes VI||Conference Place:||Edinburgh, UK||Conference Date:||26 June-1 July, 2016||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/20.500.12386/24772||URL:||https://www.spiedigitallibrary.org/conference-proceedings-of-spie/9906/990619/The-ASTRI-SST-2M-prototype-for-the-Cherenkov-Telescope-Array/10.1117/12.2232270.full||ISSN:||0277-786X||ISBN:||9781510601925||DOI:||10.1117/12.2232270||Bibcode ADS:||2016SPIE.9906E..19C||Fulltext:||open|
