Teide

Teide Observatory, on Tenerife, is home to several types of telescopes including solar, optical, and radio. In May, 2015, two LCO 40-cm telescopes were installed here in an Aqawan enclosure.  With a generous grant from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, two 1-meter telescopes were installed in 2021.  

For more information about the site and the current telescopes, check out the Observatorio del Teide website.
