First light: September 1985.

Designed and built by: RGO
Description: The JKT is
operated east of pier, with the f/15 secondary, and with the JKT Acquisition
and Guiding unit (JAG) mounted at Cassegrain. The JAG holds the autoguider,
the acquisition TV, the CCD shutter, and the filter wheel with 6 slots
for 50x50mm filters. When the acquisition TV is in use, the light path
to the CCD is blocked.
The CCD cryostat is mounted under
the JAG. Currently, the default detector is SITe2, a device with 2048x2048
24 microns pixels. For SITe2 the image scale is 0.33 arcsec/pixel, giving an unvignetted
field of view of about 10x10 arcmin.
