(telescope designed for astrometry and other precise position measurements)

An astrograph is a telescope designed specifically for astrometry and/or recording the precise position of solar system bodies, both of which push measurement accuracy and precision over the celestial sphere. Considerable high-precision astrometry effort is now done using space observatories, but the term astrograph is more commonly used for ground telescopes, indicating specific designs.
