Current and future instruments suitable for Gaia alerts response

The list here will contain surveys probable to be in operation from 2012 to 2017 suitable for following-up Gaia alerts. Please expand it with more surveys.

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.
