Titan Monitor 20-inch Telescope

The Titan Monitor (TiMo) facility at Lowell’s Mars Hill campus currently houses two telescopes mounted together. The original telescope was a 21-inch reflector that had been built in-house to observe  Titan, the largest moon of Saturn. The current telescope is a 20-inch PlaneWave CDK that is co-mounted with a 13-inch telescope for high-speed occultation observations. The CDK is instrumented with a near-infrared (NIR) Princeton Instruments NIRvana640 imager.
