We have carried out the design of a wide field telescope. The main science motivations are emphasized on fundamental astronomy, solar system studies, the Galactic structure, local univers studies, and studies on large-scale structure. The telescope, with an aperture of 2.5m or above and 3 degrees of FoV , is designed to have unprecedented imaging quality over a broad spectral range. The results from the design study may provide useful references on the development of next-generation survey facilities.
