[122.02] The Multiple Telescope Telescope

Designed and constructed by the Georgia State University Department of Physics and Astronomy, the Multiple Telescope Telescope (MTT) is an efficient, inexpensive 1 meter instrument dedicated to spectroscopic observations. The MTT is composed of nine mirrors, each focused on a separate fiber bundle which is fed directly into a Newtonian-Ebert spectrograph designed for medium to high resolution spectroscopy. The light weight of the optics and small size of the telescope allow for an inexpensive design that any university could conceivably construct. The MTT has been used primarily for observation and reconstruction of separated binary spectra, though work with giant stars, stellar oscillations, and Comet Hale-Bopp are among the other projects that have utilized the MTT.
