The Large Binocular Telescope

The Large Binocular Telescope is a binocular facility composed of two 8.4m-telescopes rigidly mounted, located atop the Mount Graham, Arizona, USA at an elevation of 3221 m, as part of the Mount Graham International Observatory (MGIO).

It can be operated in binocular mode, observing the same field with the two telescopes, and in single telescope mode.

LBT is an international joint project among Italy, Germany and the United States of America, of which Italy has 25% of the total observing time.
