Sutherland

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.

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

See the Willy Koorts video compilation of LCO's development at SAAO through September of 2012.

Below is a timelapse video of the installation of our telescopes at Sutherland during February 2013 (including 4 different camera angles).
