Abstract
Lund Observatory is presently designing and constructing a robotic telescope dedicated to studies of the Earth's albedo by measuring the ratio between the intensity of the dark and bright sides of the Moon. The telescope will operate both in broadband and narrow-band modes over the entire visible wavelength range and will transmit observational results back to the operation team over the Internet. Design challenges, in particular related to choice of CCD and stray light suppression, are described, together with the design of the optics, control system, and enclosure. Finally we present results from laboratory tests. The telescope will go into operation in the first half of 2011.
