Stock Photo - The IAC-80 Telescope, Observatorio del Teide, Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain...The IAC-80, has been completely designed and built by the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC) and it was the first of this class developed in Spain. In 1980 the IAC started its development, was finally installed at the OT in 1991. This telescope has an equatorial German mount, with an effective focal ratio of f/11.3 and effective focal length of 9.02 m and a primary mirror of diameter 82 cm. The instrumentation is installed at the Cassegrain primary focus..Smaller telescopes are ideal for research programs that cannot be carried out on the giant telescopes (10 meters or more). This fact makes the IAC a privileged institution. Its investigators, as well as others of the national and international astronomical community, have at their disposal enough facilities to carry out projects, such as extended observing campaigns, that in other places would be impracticable. The IAC80 is an ideal telescope for long-term programmes or for collaborations with other telescopes.
