Chinese Giant Solar Telescope (CGST) is the next generation ground-based solar telescope which was formally listed into the National Plans of Major Science and Technology Infrastructures. We have got series progresses of CGST in the recent years, from site testing to detailed designs. CGST is currently designed to be an 8m Ring Solar Telescope (RST). As an 8-meter solar telescope, the designing of CGST still faces some serious problems, although the ring structure is propitious to the thermo controlling and the high precision magnetic field measuring. The active control and the optical system of CGST are introduced. Then, simulations and the key calculations of the telescope, including the polarization analysis and the thermo calculation result are displayed. The present site testing methods and some results are introduced too. Finally, as the comparison in science and technology, the Chinese space solar telescope plans, such as the Deep Space Solar Observatory (DSO) and its progress are simply introduced.
