Paper Abstract

A complete preliminary optical design and tolerance analysis for the 15-Meter National New Technology Telescope (NNTT) is presented. Some designs of instruments being planned will also be discussed. The optical designs have been optimized to the performance goals that will take special advantage of the multiple mirror telescope concept, but within the practical limitation of the foreseeable technology trends.
