Paper Abstract

The European Solar Telescope (EST) is a European collaborative project promoted by the European Association for Solar Telescopes (EAST) to build a high resolution 4m class solar telescope in the Canary Islands. Since 2008 to 2011 a Design Study has been developed to define the Conceptual Design of EST. This paper presents a description of the conceptual design of EST and the results of the preliminary performance simulations, mainly focused to obtain the best telescope image quality.
