Abstract

Development of MITSuME is reported. Two 50- cm optical telescopes have been built at Akeno in Yamanashi prefecture and at Okayama Astrophysical Observatory (OAO) in Okayama prefecture. Three CCD cameras for simultaneous g′RcIc photometry are to be mounted on each focal plane, covering a wide FOV of about 30″ × 30″. The limiting magnitude at V is fainter than 18. In addition to these two optical telescopes, a 91-cm IR telescope with a 1° × 1° field of view is being built at OAO, which performs photometry in Y J H K bands. These robotic telescopes can start the observation of counterparts of a GRB within a minute from an alert. We aim to obtain photometric redshifts exceeding 10 with these telescopes. The performance and the current construction status of the telescopes are presented.
