Paper Abstract

The Remote Occulter (Orbiting Starshade) is a proposed 100-meter class starshade working with a ground-based telescope, designed for visible-band imaging and spectroscopy of temperate planets around sun-like stars. With advanced adaptive optics and the largest telescopes like the 39 m ELT, it would enable the study of planetary systems and a wide variety of exoplanets. In this paper, we describe the geometrical constraints and establish which parts of the sky are observable.
