Abstract
This study investigates the feasibility of a fast, wide-field imaging telescope using a mosaic CCD detector system. A 3- mirror design is proposed to obtain good image quality over a 2 degree field-of-view at an aperture of 2.5 m. The layout is shown to be practical with current technologies, leading to a modern telescope with potentially very good seeing properties.
