REM (Rapid Eye Mount) is a 60 cm diameter fast reacting telescope located in the La Silla premises of the ESO Chilean Observatory (29°15′S and 70°44′W).
The telescope hosts two instruments: REMIR, an infrared imaging camera, and ROS2, a visibile imager with 4 simultaneous passbands. The two cameras can also observe simultaneously thanks to a dichroic placed before telescope focus the same field of view of 10x10 arcmin. Thus, 5 images are obtained at the same time: g,r,i,z,IR.
The Observatory is operated for INAF by the d'REM Team, a delocalized group of people.

6 May 2024REM maintenence mission is over. A new, state-of-the-art cryocooler was successfully installed for the infrared camera REMIR. A last, missing electronic board will arrive next week and will finish the camera restart. By now, only the visible camera ROS2 is operational. Observing programmes have been reinstated in the schedule, unfortunately just for ROS2 g,r,i,z observing blocks. We humbly ask for a bit of patience more.
