Abstract: In this paper we present the main characteristics of the 0.80m Optical Robotic Imaging Telescope (ORIT). ORIT can be considered an improvement of the Automatic Imaging Telescope which is operating at the Astronomical Observatory of Perugia since 1994. It has an Alt-Az mount and sophisticated software and hardware components which make it a possible candidate to be the prototype instrument for a world--wide network of robotic telescopes devoted to intensive monitoring of variable sources.
