The purpose of this study is expressing advances in design stages for in flange optical field derotator system for 4 meters DAG Telescope. In-Flange Derotator KORAY (K-mirror OpticalRelAY) is designed, analysed and manufactured to meet the specifications of DAG telescope. DAG telescope, situated at Erzurum/Karakaya summit at 3150m altitude, is the first Turkish optical telescope with VIS(Visible) and IR (Infrared) observation capability. DAG, designed by Turkish engineers at FMV Isik University, is also the largest telescope (4m diameter) in Turkey and in European continent. Being one of the 2023 vision projects; the first light of DAG is expected to take place in 2021. This purpose brings some real-life challenges such as design limitations, material selection and electronic integration.
