Santa Barbara

The headquarters of LCOGT are located in Goleta, a city close to Santa Barbara, California.

The majority of LCOGT staff are located here. This is also where the 0.4-meter and 1-meter telescopes in the network are designed, assembled and tested. Most of the science team is based here and are affiliated with University of California, Santa Barbara.

For general inquiries, please see our contact page.

This is a 3 hour time-lapse video made by Edward Gomez of the telescope testing site we have in Santa Barbara, called BPL ("back parking-lot").
