abstract

LCOGT are currently building and deploying a worldwide network of at least fifteen 1-meter and twenty-four 0.4-meter telescopes to three sites in each hemisphere, enabling extended, redundant and optimally continuous coverage of time variable or transient sources. Each site will support two or more 1m telescopes and four or more 0.4m telescopes. All telescope classes provide a full range of optical narrow-band and broad-band UBVRI and ugriZY imaging filters. All telescopes are being equipped with a moving light-bar flatfielding system called Lambert. The 1m network is intended primarily for science observing while the 0.4m network additionally provides educational opportunities to participating schools and institutes. The global network is designed to accommodate multiple science, educational and rapid response capabilities. For LCOGT, the network IS the telescope.
