Fast Robotic telescope (FRT) was designed and manufactured by NAO in 2004. Project Manager – A. Shulga, responsible persons: V. Chernozub, N. Rada, E. Kozyrev, N. Kovalchuk, V. Bessarab. Maksutov mirror lens and rotating platform with photographic lenses are installed on the parallactic mount telescope. The fine system guidance of the telescope includes stepper motors (SM5) and absolute angle sensor M600. The drive accuracy through the given coordinates is of ± 0.05°. Field of view of the telescope according the hour angle is of 90° (-30 to + 60° of meridian), the declination is from -25° to +70°. GPS-receiver Trimble ResolutionT is used for time reference. Process control of observations on the telescope is performed by software system.
