Construction of Solaris-4 Telescope in Argentina completed


Project Solaris has two main goals: (1) to detect circumbinary planets around a sample of up to 350 eclipsing binary stars using eclipse timing and precision radial velocities and (2) to characterize the binary stars with an unprecedented precision to test the stellar structure and evolution models. In order to achieve these goals astronomers from the Copernicus Astronomical Center in Toruń will establish a global network of four 0.5-meter robotic telescopes (Australia, Africa, South America) to collect high precision, high cadence light curves of the binaries.


Telescope Solaris-4 is located in CASLEO Observatory, near Barreal (Sierra del Tontal region), 2600 meters above see level.
