A feasibility study of a 25 m class telescope for optical wavelengths is presented. A short summary of the scientific background is given. A possible optical design is presented and discussed. Technical and engineering aspects are detailed. Tentative solutions are proposed for manufacture of mirrors and mirror segments. The suitability of metal mirrors is discussed. Comments are given on procedures for optical testing. Details on the mechanical design of the telescope are given. A first tentative proposal for the enclosure is presented. The control system is briefly discussed. Brief comments are given on the maintenance of the telescope. Finally, a tentative implementation plan is presented, including budget and time schedule.
