(Large Sky Area Multi-object Fibre Spectroscopic Telescope
or Guo Shoujing Telescope)
is a 4/6 meter (non-circular) Schmidt reflector telescope
(a variant on a Schmidt camera)
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).
