Overwhelmingly Large Telescope

(100m telescope plan)

The Overwhelmingly Large Telescope (OWL) is a 2006 European Southern Observatory (ESO) plan for a 100 meter Adaptive Optics (AO) Reflector Telescope, i.e., like Keck Observatory but with 3048 1.6m segments. The planned location was the Canary Islands. The ESO chose to focus on the European Extremely Large Telescope (E-ELT) instead.
