ATA50 telescope, is the first in Eastern Anatolia and Turkey’s fifth largest telescopes.

Our DAG – Eastern Anatolia Observatory project, supported by the Ministry of Development (DPT), accepted in January 2012, will last for 5 years. The aim of the project is to put a 4m type telescope on Karakaya Hills. When the telescope is running, DAG telescope will be Turkey’s largest telescope.
