Abstract
Site and configuration options for a successor to the Hubble Space Telescope are discussed and one candidate is presented. The telescope is a traditional Cassegrain with a 10-meter diameter monolithic primary, adaptive secondary, and passively cooled optics. Wavelength coverage is from the far ultraviolet to the near-infrared. The observatory is located in the geosynchronous orbit to minimize environmental constraints and increase observing efficiency.
