Sutherland is home to several telescopes including the 11-meter SALT.  Construction began mid-2010 for three LCO 1-meter telescopes which were installed during the early part of 2013. We also have one 0.4-meter telescope at this site.

For more information about the site and the telescopes residing there, check out the South African Astronomical Observatory (SAAO) website.
