The main instrument of the AGO Modra is a reflecting telescope made by Zeiss with the 60-cm primary mirror and the focal length of 329 cm. There is a CCD camera Apogee Ap8 in the primary focus and a filter wheel with BVRI Johnson filters. However, most of the work is done in the unfiltered mode. The camera, filters and the telescope are controlled by a computer. A smaller, 20 cm refractor (f=304 cm) attached to the main telescope was used to observe the Sun in the H-alfa line in the past.
