An economical two-circle orienting external goniometer has been designed and fabricated for an Andonian liquid helium Dewar. The Dewar can be tilted ±30° from the vertical in two perpendicular directions. The geometrical center of the Dewar's optical cavity moves a maximum of 1 mm when the cryostat is tilted the full 30°. The basic design involves the rotation of two concentric cylinders riding on bearing surfaces. Two chain belts and gear boxes are used as drive mechanisms.
