Abstract
MONS (Measuring Oscillations in Nearby Stars) is a 320-mm-aperture telescope designed as the primary payload of the proposed Danish Small Satellite Program's Rømer mission. If launched, MONS would observe the oscillations in about 20 stars by means of highly sensitive photometric measurements of the relative blue and red signal levels, enabling new insights into the structure and evolution of solar-type stars. We describe the key aspects of the telescope design and analysis of the optical design.
