MeerLICHT is an automated 0.65-meter telescope at the Sutherland Observing Station of the South African Astronomical Observatory (SAAO) in South Africa, specifically designed to automatically follow up radio events (fast radio bursts) noticed by the MeerKAT radio telescope, with optical observations. It serves as a pilot for BlackGEM, and is identical to the BlackGEM telescopes.
