LCO 1m telescope

The first 1-meter telescope in the Las Cumbres Observatory global network (pictured) saw first light at McDonald Observatory in 2012. Located on Mount Fowlkes, this robotic telescope is part of a world-wide network of telescopes used in both research and education. On October 30, 2019, a second 1-meter LCO telescope was dedicated at McDonald, in an adjacent dome on Mount Fowlkes. Credit: Frank Cianciolo/McDonald Observatory
