Liverpool Telescope

The Liverpool Telescope (LT) is a 2-metre fully robotic Ritchey–Chrétien telescope that observes autonomously; i.e. , it operates without human intervention. Professional astronomers and other registered users submit observation specifications to be considered by the telescope's robotic control system (RCS) at any time of the day or night using an online GUI. Each night the RCS decides for itself what to observe next based on visibility and weather conditions.
