Paper Abstract

The COSMO K-Coronagraph is scheduled to replace the aging Mk4 K-Coronameter at the Mauna Loa Solar Observatory of the National Center for Atmospheric Research in 2013. We present briefly the science objectives and derived requirements, and the optical design. We single out two topics for more in-depth discussion: stray light, and performance of the camera and polarimeter.
