Abstract:

Since the inception of the ETC program in 1981, the MIT research team has developed a wide range of new technologies to support this novel astronomical instrument. The prototype unit was installed at ETC Site 1 on the summit of Kitt Peak in October, 1984. The first partially-automated observations were made in Spring, 1985. During CY1986, major renovations were made to the ETC hardware.
