Considering the critical points of NEO astrometry we have decided to extend the Klet Observatory NEO follow-up programme to fainter objects using a new 1.06-meter reflector equipped with a more efficient CCD camera. This KLENOT Project started in 1997/1998.
The KLENOT project is a project of the KLEt observatory Near earth and Other unusual objects observations Team (and Telescope), concentrating particularly on fainter objects, up to a limiting magnitude of V = 22.0.
The planned main goals of project KLENOT are confirmation and follow-up astrometry of newly discovered NEOs, recoveries of NEOs in the second opposition, and follow-up astrometry of poorly observed NEOs and other unusual objects.
For the proposed project we are building the new 1.06-m KLENOT telescope. We present here the current status of the KLENOT Project.
