LAMOST (Large Sky Area Multi-Object Fibre Spectroscopic Telescope or Guo Shoujing Telescope) is a 4/6 meter (non-circular) Schmidt Reflector Telescope for Spectroscopy of galaxies and Milky Way stars. It focuses on a Focal Plane of 1.75 meter diameter, to the ends of 4000 repositionable fibers leading to Spectrographs. It began service in 2008, aimed at a five-year surveying project called LEGUE (for LAMOST Experiment for Galactic Understanding and Evolution).
