The Rapid Response Robotic Telescope (RRRT), is a 24 inches (about 60 cm) Ritchy-Chretien Telescope, with a fork-equatorial mount.
It is housed under a clam-shell dome that opens to the full sky (above 30 degrees in altitude). The RRRT can be operated fully robotically through an Scheduler software (DC-3 Dreams SP), remotely (thorough the Internet) or on-site. An off-axis guider can be used for long exposures, two sets of filter wheels (one oversized) can be used to house all standard broad and narrow band color filters. We also have a set of Savart plates for imaging polarimetry. The telescope is connected to the VOEevent Network for prompt reception of transient phenomena and can reach a target in few seconds..
