V.M. Lipunov (Moscow State Univ., Sternberg Astronomical Institute)

We present the first russian robot-telescope for gamma-bursts synchronous observations. The telescopes are near Moscow and belong to Sternberg Astronomical Institute. The system of telescopes with prompt pointing rate connects to internet.

The main parameters are the following:

- Rihter-Slefogt system telescope (200mm, FOW is 4x4 degree) - Fluge system telescope (280mm, F/D=2,5, FOW = 4x4 degree) - TV-camera with 20x40 degree objective - Two CCD cameras (Pictor 416) - One CCD Apogey Camera AP16E - German type of mount with 8 grad/sec pointing rate

Observatory starts at the december of 2002 year.
