The SONG-China project teams up stellar astronomer from different institutions, whose interests covers almost all possible science goals of SONG & 50BiN. Hardware and software R&D groups are also involved.

The 50BiN Chinese partner group are formed by the following institutions:

Chinese national partners in 50BN

NAOC: National Astronomical Observatories, Chinese Academy of Sciences

YNAO: Yunnan Astronomical Observatory, Chinese Academy of Sciences

PMO: Purple Mountain Observatory, Chinese Academy of sciences

NIAOT: Nanjing Institute of Astronomical Optics & Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences

CWNU: China-West Normal University (College of Physics and Electronic Information)

GZHU: GuangZHou University (School of Physics and Electronic Engineering)

NJU: Nanjing Univeristy (School of Astronomy and Space Science)

BNU: Beijing Normal University (Depart of Astronomy)

We are looking forward to having more SONG/50BiN site institutions to join 50BiN !

The host of any 50BiN node will be considered as a partner, just as Delingha site of PMO. We are looking forward to having all 50BiN hosts and other participating telescopes to join us. Right now we are discussing site issues with IAC, and will be soon going for APO. UVI's 50cm telescope will join the network in a near future.
