Abstract
The U. S. Naval Observatory is now in the process of constructing a 60" reflecting telescope at their site near Flagstaff, Arizona. The name of this instrument is the 60" Astrometric Reflector, and all aspects of its design and construction are directed toward very high accuracy and long-term stability. The special problem for which the Naval Observatory will use this telescope is the study of stars called Red Dwarfs, White Dwarfs, and Sub-Dwarfs. The physical characteristics of these stars differ from stars of the solar type.
