Paper Abstract

The design of any modern astronomical telescope requires close interaction between the science requirements, the optical and mechanical design of the telescope and its instrumentation. In addition new, large aperture, telescopes will need to have adaptive optics as an integral part of the concept. This paper discusses optical concepts for the telescope and instruments, highlighting technology challenges.
