Abstract
We describe a method by which a lightweight, low-quality, reflecting primary is holographically corrected to diffraction limited operation. The resulting telescope can be used to transmit or receive optical data signals with frequencies up to 100 GHz with high SNR (> 60 dB). The simplicity of this design makes it ideal for future global satellite networks or space probe communications.
