T60

-A +A

 

0.60-meter fully robotic T60 telescope was installed in 2008. The first light was taken in September, 2008. This telescope is dedicated to object-based photometric observations.

This telescope is mainly used in multi-band photometric observations of variable  stars as well as follow-up observations of GAIA or GRB alerts.
