We examine the factors that drive the size and cost of software for a hypothetical 30 meter telescope and compare those to that of a hypothetical 10 meter telescope. Our goal is to explore methods for developing estimates for such costs. The estimates provided here are intended primarily as examples for these methods, and should not be construed as accurate.
