Current and future instruments suitable for Gaia alerts response

Please expand this list with information on the telescopes/surveys which might be suitable and interested in Gaia alerts follow-up and in operation in years 2012-2017.

Hessman's list of (mainly robotic) telescopes (including ones in preparation).

  • MASTER Robotic Net (Lipunov et al. 2009) limiting mag= 19-20, started in 2002 in Moscow, Russia, followed-up many GCN alerts; now being upgraded to a network all over Russia (1000 clear nights per year).
  • 3 telescopes operated at the Konkoly Observatory, Piszkesteto Mountain Station [1] (Hungary): 50 cm Cassegrain, 60/90/180 cm Schmidt, 1m RCC.
