A fast-response state-of-the-art PlaneWave Instruments telescope is mounted at the Assy-Turgen observatory within the framework of the NUTTelA-TAO project.

The NUTTelA-TAO project is a collaboration between Energetic Cosmos Laboratory (Nazarbayev University), Space Sciences Laboratory (University of California, Berkeley), and Fesenkov Astrophysical Institute. The project aims at studying deep space events related to optical afterglows of gamma-ray bursts and other processes requiring fast response for their investigation.

The original design of the telescope dome allows to start observations of an object in automatic mode immediately after receiving the object’s coordinates from the satellite.
