The MIDAS Project is currently being developed
from three astronomical observatories in Spain: Sevilla, La Hita and La
Sagra. Some observing campaigns are also conducted from
Calar Alto Astronomical Observatory.
equipment consists of a series of Schmidt-Cassegrain and Newtonian
telescopes endowed with high-sensitivity cameras. Thus, from Sevilla we
operate a series of 7 Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes with diameters
ranging between 14 and 9.25". From La Hita Astronomical
Observatory we operate remotely a 40 cm Newtonian telescope. And two 14"
Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes are also employed at La Sagra. All
these instruments work in a coordinated way in order to identify
impact flashes produced by rocks hitting the lunar surface.
