Abstract
Pan-STARRS, the Panoramic Survey Telescope and Rapid Response System, is a project to first develop a single wide field synoptic survey telescope (Pan-STARRS-1) followed by a system of four such telescopes. It is designed to accomplish many of the science goals envisioned by the decadal review for LSST. The primary mission of Pan-STARRS is the detection of potentially hazardous asteroids (PHA), secondary science objectives are a (nearly) all-sky survey, a medium-deep survey, an ultra-deep survey, and studies of transients and variable objects. This paper presents the current status of the telescope design, with emphasis on the optics.
