The CFHT is a 3.6 meter telescope on Mauna Kea, operated by the non-profit CFHT Corporation. Telescope time is available primarily through established partnerships – the National Research Council of Canada, the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique of France, and the University of Hawaii. Most observing is carried out through queue observing with three instruments: MagaCam, WIRCam, and ESPaDOnS.
