|LCO’s one-of-a-kind, worldwide network of robotic telescopes (currently 2 x 2m; 9 x 1m; 10 x 0.4m). The ability to make continuous astronomical observations over periods of several days. LCO are able to do this because they operate multiple telescopes, while located at sites all around the world, are connected via the internet and centrally controlled to act as a single scientific instrument.|
Faulkes Telescope Project can provide access to the LCO network for around 50 hours/year for EPN24 – as the network is robotic, time is allocated and “spent” in units of hours, rather than nights.
FTP has around 550 hours/year of 2m time on the LCO network, and can access the 1m and 0.4m networks by “exchanging” this time at a rate of 1 hr of 2m = 2 hrs of 1m = 5 hrs of 0.4m time.
Additional time on the LCO network (beyond the 50hrs committed in the EPN24 proposal may be possible through discussion with Paul Roche.
