Abstract
Manufacture of the 4.2 metre William Herschel Telescope by Grubb Parsons of Newcastle and by Marconi Radar Systems of Leicester, England, will be completed by the end of 1983. It will be installed on the island of La Palma during 1985 and will become operational in 1986. Although the design of this telescope is conventional in many ways, it does incorporate a number of special features facilitated or made possible by its altazimuth mounting. The paper describes some of these features.
