Paper Abstract

An optical synthetic telescope is being planned for production by Nanjing Astronomical Instrument Factory. This telescope is to be set up for use at Xinglong station of Beijing Astronomical Observatory.The 4.3 meter optical infrared new technology telescope is an altazimuth-mounting telescope. Through the fiber combination of 4.3 meter telescope and some currently used optical telescopes. Xinglong station will enhance its concentrating light power up to that of a 5.1 meter telescope. Through the vacuum pipe combination of the 4.3 meter telescope and the 2.16 meter telescope and by using CCD photography and optical interfering measurement, it will enhance its resolution to that of a more than a 10 meter telescope.
