The concept design of a suitable, affordable telescope to be used by tertiary education institutions (TEIs) has recently been completed by the CSIR with Klee Optical Systems as part of a project on the study of large optics. The telescope concept makes use of design principles relating to a landbased telescope that are similar to those applicable to sensors for space applications, thereby supporting the CSIR's space sensor focus and the Department of Science and Technology's space programme.
