Segmented mirrors will be used in the telescopes of the Pierre Auger Fluorescence detector. To align the segments, we have developed four methods in which (a) the image of the stop border, (b) the image of a screen with concentric circles, and (c) the Ronchi pattern are used. In addition to these, we have developed a new method, (d), in which instead of the Ronchi ruling, we have used a circular grid. In this case we obtain a moiré pattern for each segment by means of which the experimental setup is simplified, and the sensitivity of the alignment is improved.
