dc.description.abstract
The First G-APD Cherenkov Telescope (FACT) is pioneering the usage of solid state photosensors (G-APD, also known as SiPM). The 1440 pixel camera is installed in a 9.5 m2 refurbished HEGRA telescope on the Canary Island La Palma. Physics data-taking with FACT started in October 2011, a few hours after installation of the camera. Since Summer 2012, FACT is operated remotely without the need of a data-taking crew on site. During more than three years of operation of FACT, G-APDs have proven to be very reliable. Despite operating them regularly also under very strong moonlight conditions, the G-APDs show no change in their properties or any indication for aging. This allows FACT to have a successful monitoring program of the brightest TeV blazars in the Northern hemisphere and several flare-alerts have been sent to the community. This proceeding summarizes the history and status of FACT as well as reporting the lessons learned about the usage of SiPM in a Cherenkov telescope from the construction and operation of FACT.
