Allan... to my understanding Astro tech have suggested they intend to manufacture telescopes around GSO optics (which makes them the manufacturer and GSO the subcontract component supplier) ... in any case, you seem to have missed the point with with respect to the merit function of quartz optics installed in carbon fibre tubes.

Can you show me an example of a large ground based telescope that bothers with the expense of carbon fibre truss tubes and quartz optics that isn't designed for launch in to space?
