We present a design concept for a 16 metre, wide-field, fixed-axis, all-reflective, segmented f/4 Schmidt telescope to take advantage of the unique possibilities of Antarctica for both optical and near infrared astronomy. The design allows observation of all RA/dec's accessible from Antarctica, with tracking times of several hours.
Prime and Cassegrain foci are provided, giving plate scales 300-3000microns/", over fields of view 1.5'-0.5°. Diffraction limited, natural guide-star AO-corrected Kdark images are possible over
arc-minute sized fields, over 70% of the sky. The sensitivity, resolution, field of view and cost all compare favourably with current or proposed space or ground-based telescopes.
