SONG-China

Welcome to visit the home page of SONG-China!

SONG is an international collaboration to do time domain researches on stellar physics, including asteroseismology, extra-solar planets, transient phenomena and much more. Currently, the Danish prototype SONG node is in installation stage at Observatorio del Teide. The second 1 meter SONG node telescope, the Chinese node, is manufactured at NIAOT. In addition to the original SONG 1 meter telescope network, China proposed a sub-program within SONG to take advantages of the network to do large field photometry also in time domain, which is called 50BN (50 centimeter Binocular Network). 50BN telescopes are now fully funded by a national partner group of Chinese  universities. SONG-China project has been lunched officially in 2010. Please surf in this site for details about the whole project.
