(ground-based automatic transiting planet finding telescope)
The TRAPPIST telescope
(transiting planets and Planetesimals Small Telescope)
is a Belgian robotic telescope at La Silla Observatory in Chile.
It has a .6m telescope and is installed in the housing
of the retired Swiss T70 Telescope. It
searches for and observes extra-solar planet transits,
as well as solar system planetesimals.
Among its discoveries are exoplanets around TRAPPIST-1
including one that appears to be in its habitable zone.
