Paper Abstract

After several years of technology development and concept evaluation, the "four-barrel" Multiple Mirror Telescope concept has been selected for the 15-M National New Technology Telescope. Performance goals are presented. The principal optical configurations are described with emphasis on trade-offs under current study. The method planned for aligning and phasing the optics is outlined.
