The Faulkes Telescope Project: Not Just Pretty Pictures
The Faulkes Telescope (FT) Project is an educational
and research arm of the Las Cumbres Observatory Global Telescope Network (LCOGTN). As well as producing spectacular images of galaxies, nebulae, supernovae remnants, star clusters, etc, the FT team is involved in several projects pursuing scientific goals. Many of these projects also incorporate data collected and analysed by schools and amateur astronomers. We detail a few of these projects in forthcoming sections.
