TRAPPIST Set-up -That's what I want!!!

Recommended Posts

In the September Issue of the ESO Messenger, there's a detailed write up on the TRAPPIST 60cm f8 telescope used for exo-planet research as well as specialised filter images of comets etc.

Their website is worthwhile visiting:


The ASTELCO New Technology mount, NTM-500 is quoted as "zero PE"


No guiding!

4 min exposures.....

I want one!

There's an NTM-500 in Nelson, NZ, being used for GRB observations. Talk about fast target acquisition! The direct drive tech is just amazing. As you said, no PE, no guiding...
