Out of the five 2-meter class of telescopes built in Birkenhead (UK) by TTL (before it became part of LCOGT), FT North was the second to be installed and commissioned, enjoying first light in 2003.
At present Hawaiian and UK schools, along with LCOGT astronomers have exclusive access to this research class telescope.
Initial capital and operational funding for the Faulkes Telescope North was provided by The Dill Faulkes Educational Trust. Faulkes Telescope North is now operated by Las Cumbres Observatory as a component of the Las Cumbres Observatory Global Telescope Network.
