Abstract: The DAG project is an ongoing observatory project which will house a 4-meter diameter Optical/Infra-Red telescope with active and adaptive optics at 3170m elevation in Erzurum, Turkey. The telescope is going to have two Nasmyth platform measuring 4m by 3m. One platform will have an adaptive optics system and instruments for diffraction limited observations, and the other will be used for seeing limited instruments. The DAG telescope is planned to be autonomous in a way that the observatory control system will select targets depending on atmospheric, meteorological and astronomical conditions. Ongoing observations of these conditions, and the already collected data create a solid statistics of the past to look to the future. DAG-OPT is a platform for users who will apply for observing time on the DAG telescope on which users will plan every detail of their observation run during the proposing process.
