Abstract
As the latest generation of large (8 - 10 meter) telescopes are taking their first observations of our expanding universe, a new age of 2.0 m class high performance telescopes is emerging to support them. Telescopes of this aperture can be used as part of an interferometric array to combine their science beams with that of a larger telescope, as with the W. M. Keck and VLT Outrigger Telescopes projects. These telescopes are also used for survey and target acquisition work.
