Location of the Liverpool Telescope

The Liverpool Telescope can be found on the spanish island of La Palma, which is one of the Canary Islands off the north coast of Africa. The promise of good weather, dark nights and an extinct volcano, provide the perfect setting for a robotic telescope.

Island of La Palma

For those that understand latitude and longitude, the exact location of the telescope is as follows:

Latitude: 28° 45' 44.8" North Longitude: 17° 52' 45.2" West

To give you a sense of the natural beauty of La Palma, we shall take you on a virtual drive up mountain roads to the remote site of the telescope. Click on the NEXT button below when you are ready to start that journey.



Please note that over the weekend of the 26-28th May 2017 we will be switching over to our brand new website - during this time there may be periods where the site is difficult to access, and users will be unable to request observations from the telescope. Please bear with us during this time. All should be back up and running by the 29th May 2017.
