MM_total = (MM_vert + MM_horiz) / 2. 

The large astigmatic MM loss in the LO case is mainly due to the strong LO4 curvature (R=0.15m) with a 10 deg AOI. I looked again at whether LO1 could be increased from R=5m to the next higher stock value of 7.5m, as this would allow weaker curvatures on LO3 and LO4. However, no, that is not possible---it reduces the LO1-LO2 Gouy phase separation to only 18 deg.

There is, however, a good stock-curvature option if we want to reconsider actuating LO4 instead of LO2 (attachment 1). It achieves 99.2% MM with the OMCs, allowing positions to vary +/-1" from the current design. The LO1-LO4 Gouy phase separation is 72 deg.

Optic ROC (m) Distance from PR2 AR (m)
LO1 10 0.378
LO2 1000 2.984
LO3 10 4.571
LO4 7.5 4.926

Alternatively, we could look at reducing the AOI on LO3 and LO4 (keeping LO1-LO2 actuation).
