Tenerife node gets its first telescopes

You may remember that in 2012 we prepared an observatory site on mount Teide on the island of Tenerife (one of the Canary Islands in the Atlantic Ocean). Sadly that site has remained empty of LCOGT telescopes. However, are pleased to announce that after a very successful trip we now have not 1 but 2 telescopes there. This trip was very significant for LCOGT in a number of ways; not only have we added a new site to our global network but we have tripled the number of 0.4-meter telescopes we have deployed (the first 0.4-meter was installed at our Chile node in 2014).
