The GOTO telescopes
The telescopes are deployed in phases, and the project is set up such that it can scale easily.
The first telescope is planned at the Observatorio del Roque de los Muchachos, on the island of La Palma.
Four unit telescopes using a 50M pixel detector will be deployed on a single mount. This will deliver approximately a five square degree field of view per telescope, with a pixel scale of 1.2 arcsec. A wide optical passband is used, which should result in a depth of 20 - 21 magnitude in 5 minutes, largely dependent on sky brightness/moon phase.
The telescope will be scaled up to 8 telescopes total on a single mount, to cover a total 40 square degree field of view.
A third phase foresees a further set of telescopes in a second dome.
Fourth phase and beyond
Construction of the Southern node in Australia.
