In the fabrication of optical antennas for problems in atmospheric optics a great deal of attention is paid to the quality of the optical components. In this paper control and measuring instruments (shadow and interferometer), in which residual aberrations do not affect quality control, are analyzed. These instruments are used for checking the surfaces of optical antennas with a large aperture ratio.
