hi,

Chandrayaan-II does not have a telescope on-board.

NASA is proposing to do studies for a possible position for a future and improved version of the Hubble Telescope. The Second Lagrangian Point (L2) is expected to be a good place to put a telescope.

L2 is on the lunar far-side and hence the Moon acts as a natural barrier that reduces Earth-shine and the intensity of sun-shine enabling the telescope to look at fainter objects.

warm regards,
Pradeep
