The Isaac Newton Group of Telescopes (ING) consists of the 4.2-m William Herschel Telescope (WHT) and the 2.5-m Isaac Newton Telescope (INT), operating on the island of La Palma in the Canary Islands, Spain. The INT began scheduled use by the astronomical community in May 1984 and the WHT in August 1987. The Isaac Newton Group of Telescopes is operated on behalf of the UK Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) the Nederlanse Organisatie voor Wetenschappelijk Onderzoek (NWO), and the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC). The STFC, the NWO, and the IAC have entered into collaborative agreements for the operation of and the sharing of observing time on the ING telescopes. There are five telescopes installed in BakÄ±rtepe: RTT150 - Russian-Turkish 1.5-m Telescope (formerly AZT-22) (2001), T100 (ACE RC1.0) - 1.0 m Ritchey–Chrétien telescope (2009), T60 (OMI RC06) - 0.6 m Ritchey–Chrétien telescope (2008), YT40 (Meade LX200GPS) - 0.4 m Schmidt–Cassegrain telescope (2006) and ROTSEIIID Robotic Optical Transient Search Experiment. TUG telescopes also contribute successfully to the education and training of young astronomers by offering an opportunity to successful senior students in universities to work at the Observatory for a week or so. The ING Board has been set up to oversee the operation of this agreement, to foster and develop collaboration between the astronomers of the UK, the Netherlands and Spain, and to ensure that the telescope installations are maintained in the forefront of world astronomy. In particular the ING Board oversees the programme of operation, maintenance, and development of the installations approves annual budgets, and forward estimates and determines the arrangements for the allocation of observing time. Their vision is to be one of the pioneer intuitions in astronomy and Space science.
