James Clerk Maxwell Telescope

The JCMT is a 15-m diameter telescope optimized for observations at sub-millimeter wavelengths, situated close to the summit of Mauna Kea, Hawaii. Although the JCMT is a partnership between the United Kingdom, Canada and the Netherlands in accordance with the site agreement with the University of Hawaii, proposals can be accepted from individuals and groups of any nationality. The JCMT is used to study our Solar System, interstellar dust and gas, and distant galaxies.
