AbstractMEGARA is an integral-field and multi-object medium-resolution spectrograph for the GTC 10.4m telescope, which was commissioned on June - August 2017. MEGARA offers two observing modes, the LCB mode, a large central IFU; and a Multi-Object Spectrograph (MOS) mode, composed by 92 robotic positioners carrying 7-fiber minibundles each. This paper presents the models and measurements developed for the alignment between the image of the telescope pupil and the 100-¿m fiber cores during the integration and verification at the laboratory. On the one hand, the error in the positioner-minibundles assembly was optimized with the aim of achieving a fiber-to-fiber flux homogeneity better than 10%. On the other hand, the positioner pointing was characterized in order to achieve a pointing precision of 1/5 of the spaxel size (which has been designed to be 0.62 arcsec). The on-sky measurements obtained during the commissioning to verify our laboratory results are also presented. © 2018 SPIE.
