Every month we’ll be choosing our favourite picture, image or video and posting it to our “Picture of the Month” album on Flickr. This month, we’re featuring a rendering of the proposed telescope designs. CTA’s three classes of telescope will provide a broad energy coverage from billions to trillions the energy of visible light. For its core energy range (100 GeV to 10 TeV), CTA is planning 40 Medium-Size Telescopes (MSTs). Eight Large-Size Telescopes (LSTs) and 70 Small-Size Telescopes (SSTs) are planned to extend the energy range below 100 GeV and above a few TeV.
