Faulkes Telescope North

The Faulkes Telescope North is a clone of the Liverpool Telescope, and is located at Haleakala Observatory in the U.S. state of Hawaii. It is a 2 m (79 in) f/10 Ritchey-Chrétien telescope.

The telescope is owned and operated by LCOGT. This telescope and its sister telescope Faulkes Telescope South are used by research and education groups across the globe. The Faulkes Telescope Project is one such group which provides observing time (awarded by LCOGT) for educational projects for UK schools and amateur astronomers.

In 2013, it imaged the defunct Herschel Space Observatory.[1]
