The Isaac Newton Group of Telescopes (ING) consists of the 4.2 metre William Herschel Telescope and the 2.5 metre Isaac Newton Telescope. The ING is owned by the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC-UKRI) of the United Kingdom, and it is operated jointly with the Nederlandse Organisatie voor Wetenschappelijk Onderzoek (NWO) of the Netherlands and the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC) of Spain. IAC's contribution to ING is funded by the Spanish Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities. The telescopes are located at a height of 2350 metres above the sea level in the Spanish Observatorio del Roque de los Muchachos (ORM) on La Palma, Canary Islands, which is operated by the IAC. Among highlights from the ING telescopes were the first identification of the optical outburst of a gamma ray burster, leading to its location in a distant galaxy, or the observational contribution to the discovery of the acceleration of the universe (Supernova Cosmology Project, Physics Nobel Prize 2011).
