Abstract

CANGAROO-III is an imaging atmospheric Cherenkov telescope array of four 10-m telescopes for very high energy (sub-TeV) γ-ray astronomy. A design study of the CANGAROO-III telescope system was carried out using the Monte Carlo technique in order to optimize the pixel size and the telescope spacing. Studies were also made of observations at low elevation angles.
