The Zadko Telescope is situated in the state of Western Australia at longitude 115 deg 42’ 49’’ E, latitude 31 deg 21’ 24’’ S at an altitude of 50 m above sea level.
The Zadko Telescope facility is being upgraded in 2012. The current observatory building is being replaced with a new automated observatory building optimized for rapid response imaging of transients. This is being facilitated via funding from the Department of Environment and Conservation - Perth Observatory. UWA has received ARC funding to build a new instrument and imaging package with spectroscopic capability. This work will be completed in 2012-2013.
