Abstract
AMOS is in charge of the development of the unit telescopes of the MRO interferometer. Beyond the image quality and the tracking performance, the interferometry necessitates maintaining the optical pathlength between two telescopes sufficiently stable during observation. This paper depicts the detailed design of the telescopes and how it suits to the high end requirements of the system. The distinctive features of the elevation over elevation configuration are also discussed.
