System Characteristics

1. Robotic wide field optical complex is designed for the continuous monitoring of sky and observations of selected objects.
2. Rate of sky survey - at least 540 sq. deg. per night.
3. Depth of survey 23rd magnitude in the moonless night.
4. Accuracy of objects angular position measurement less than 0.3 arcsec.
5. Photometric accuracy: better than 0.1 for 22nd magnitude objects, better than 0.01 for 17th magnitude objects.
6. Processing of images is performed in the real time mode, results of observations are available in internet.
7. Control remote (via WWW) and fully autonomous operation.

The Complex includes:

1. Wide-field reflecting telescope with a diameter of 1 m, focal length of 2.5 m and active optics.
2. The world's largest monolith CCD (112 Megapixels) able to provide the 5 sq. deg. field of view.
3. Rapid, fully automated azimuthal mount.
4. Robotized fully opening dome of shell type.
5. Cloud sensors and rain sensors.
6. Set of high-speed control and processing computers and image storage (up to 100 TBytes), database.

Technical Characteristics of the Telescope and Mount

The complex is designed for the space monitoring and quick response to the alerts from other robotized systems.
The complex is installed in the good astroclimate conditions with the maximum number of clear nights. Operating the complex requires electric power and internet. Consumed power is 50 kWt.
The system does not require the continuous stay of the operator. <
