STILT: System Design & Performance    [PDF]

N. R. Mawson, I. A. Steele, R. J. Smith
The Small Telescopes Installed at the Liverpool Telescope (STILT) have been in operation since March 2009, collecting wide field data from their position, mounted to the Liverpool Telescope. The two instruments; SkycamT and SkycamZ have been used to create a variability search of the skies visible at La Palma with the limits of 12th and 18th R band magnitude with fields of view of 21x21 and 1x1 degrees. We provide here a description of the hardware and software setup and the performance of the system to date.
