JST250 (Javalambre Survey Telescope) is a 2.55 m, F#3.5 alt-azimuthal telescope with a Ritchey-Chrétien-like configuration with a large field of view of 3 deg diameter, particularly defined for carrying out large sky photometric surveys like J-PAS.
The Javalambre Auxiliary Survey Telescope (JAST80) is an 80cm Ritchey Chrétien telescope with a large field of view of 2 deg diameter, particularly defined for carrying out large sky photometric surveys like J-PLUS.
