    • Horizontal Solar Telescope with Spectrograph: Jensch type coelostat with two plane mirrors (D = 60 cm) The telescope is of an off-axial Kutter type with a spherical main mirror (D = 50 cm, f = 35 m). The collimator and camera mirrors of the spectrograph are of the apertures 25 cm and 40 cm respectively, (f = 9.65 m). Dispersion of the spectrograph is about 0.16 nm/mm in the first order.
