Wide-field telescope setup
The GOTO team has built an initial four-telescope system at its observatory on La Palma. The system achieves a very wide field of view, so that wide swathes of the sky can be searched quickly for transient optical phenomena related to potential gravity-wave events, following automatic alerts from the LIGO or VIRGO interferometers.
