Paper Abstract

This special section of Optical Engineering is focused on ground-based telescopes and instrumentation. Several new ground-based facilities have started operations, and astronomical instrumentation has been developed from new and creative technologies. The papers that are contained in this special section include upgrades to existing telescopes/observatories to improve image quality. They also describe new accurate tracking control systems that are being deployed from small to large telescopes in multiple wavelengths.
