Abstract
DAG (Eastern Anatolia Observatory in Turkish) will be the newest and largest (4m) observatory of Turkey in both optical (VIS) and near-infrared (NIR) with its robust observing site infrastructure. The telescope is designed¬ to house 2 Nasmyth platforms which will be dedicated to NIR and VIS observations. A collaboration has recently been established among four Turkish universities including FMV Işık University (for adaptive optics systems), Middle East Technical University (for measurement, test and calibration purposes), Istanbul University (for new technology instruments, e.g. MKIDs) and as the coordinator Ataturk University (for obtaining NIR and VIS instruments). In this paper the status of the recently approved FPI project and its aims are presented and possible collaboration opportunities are emphasized.
