I'd think that interplanetary communications would be the greatest problem with a setup like this, with current capabilities that is.
You'll need to sync the 3 telescopes correctly and doing so at the interplanetary distance would be rather difficult to say the least.
Especialy when you want the telescopes to return decent amounts of results to make the enterprise of putting them there worth it.

Now let's say we would use this for space exploration - I have heard that with 3 synchronized telescopes with size app like Hubble - one on Earth orbit, one on Jupiter orbit and one on Pluto orbit - we could see the 75-80 meters large details on Alpha Centauri.
