Résumé

The use of small telescopes for the production of significant research is examined from the points of view of cost-effectiveness, notable successes already achieved, the advantages over large telescopes in the areas of efficiency, availability, flexibility and serendipitous and speculative observation. It is concluded that small telescopes have an increasingly important role to play in modern astronomy.
