The Phase A design study of PILOT-the Pathfinder for an International Large Optical Telescope-has demonstrated that a wide-field 2.5 m optical/IR telescope can be constructed at Concordia for a reasonable cost. There are no technical “show stoppers”, and the cost of logistics is also quantifiable and reasonable. A strong science case has been developed and published as three separate papers. In order to proceed further, the next step is to undertake a detailed design study and identify potential manufacturers.
