The Liverpool Telescope is a 2m fully robotic telescope, meaning that it can be remotely operated and also run without human intervention once given a list of observations to make. Liverpool John Moores University is a modern university in Liverpool, England. Roqué de los Muchachos Observatory is an Astronomical observatory located in the municipality of Garafía on the island of La Palma in the Canary Isla de La Palma (known in English as "La Palma" not to be confused with "Palma" in the Balearic Islands is a Spanish volcanic ocean island The metre or meter is a unit of Length. It is the basic unit of Length in the Metric system and in the International A robotic telescope is an astronomical Telescope and detector system that makes Observations without the intervention of a Human. It is the largest robotic telescope in the world to be used primarily for astronomy.
The telescope was built by Telescope Technologies Ltd. , and is owned by Liverpool John Moores University with operational funding from PPARC. Liverpool John Moores University is a modern university in Liverpool, England. The Particle Physics and Astronomy Research Council (or PPARC) was one of a number of Research Councils in the United Kingdom. It is sited at the Observatorio del Roque de Los Muchachos on La Palma. Roqué de los Muchachos Observatory is an Astronomical observatory located in the municipality of Garafía on the island of La Palma in the Canary Isla de La Palma (known in English as "La Palma" not to be confused with "Palma" in the Balearic Islands is a Spanish volcanic ocean island It is a Ritchey-Chrétien telescope. The Ritchey-Chrétien telescope or RCT is a specialized Cassegrain telescope designed to eliminate coma, thus providing a relatively large field of view
Along with the Faulkes Telescope North and the Faulkes Telescope South, the Liverpool Telescope is also available for use by school children around the world over the internet. The Faulkes Telescope North is a clone of the Liverpool Telescope, and is located at Haleakala Observatory in the U The Faulkes Telescope South (which was cloned to build the Liverpool Telescope) and is located at Siding Spring Observatory.
The Liverpool Telescope is one of the primary players in the Heterogeneous Telescope Networks Consortium, a global collaboration between major research groups in the field of robotic telescopes which seeks a standard for communication between remote telescopes, telescope users, and other scientific resources.
