The Geneva Observatory has built two new 1.2-meter twin telescopes, one of them already operating in Chile since May 1998. The second prototype will be installed at the end of the year 2000 on the Canary Island La Palma (Spain). The technological complexity of these alt-azimuthal telescopes, as well as the operational constraints (an observer should be able to command on his own the whole infrastructure) required a control system taking care of all observation tasks, similar to the ones mounted… CONTINUE READING
