Paper Abstract

We consider the advantages and disadvantages for astrophysical observations of a normal incidence X-ray telescope. Our baseline configuration is for a 2.4 meter diameter mirror operating at 0.23-0.28 keV with a CCD detector having a pixel size equivalent to 0.1 arcsec. This resolution enables X-ray images to be made comparable to those of Space Telescope (ST) in the optical and to those of the Very Large Array (VLA) in the radio for a large number of sources. Specific examples cover essentially the entire range of astrophysics.
