Abstract
The new 1.5 m high resolution telescope will be build up on the reused solar tower of the German 45 cm Gregory Coude Telescope at the Teide Observatory, Izana, Tenerife. The new telescope is a Gregory type with open telescope structure, alt-azimuth mount, complete retractable dome, and a pool of well established and new developed post focus instruments. An adaptive optics system provides the capability for diffraction limited observations at visible wavelengths and the polarimetry device in the secondary focus reduces the perturbation due to instrumental polarization in an efficient way. We describe the main optical characteristics and the focal plane instrumentation with respect to the latest status of the project.
