Paper Abstract

The Cambridge optical aperture synthesis telescope (COAST) has now been developed to the point where stellar images with a resolution of 20 mas can be produced in a routine manner. Based upon our experiences in the design and commissioning of COAST this paper discusses the possible design of a next generation interferometer.
