Faulkes Telescopes Project

The Faulkes Telescopes Project (FTP) is supported by the Dill Faulkes Educational Trust. It provides access to 1,500 hours of observing time on two 2-metre class telescopes located in Hawaii (Faulkes Telescope North) and Australia (Faulkes Telescope South).

This time is dedicated to education and public outreach, mainly in the UK, but also for smaller, selected projects in Europe and the US.

The project also provides extensive educational materials which can be accessed and downloaded free of charge from their educational resources website. These resources include astronomy video tutorials, online astronomy training, paper-based documents for use in the classroom, and pre-packaged data from the telescopes to use with the exercises detailed online.
