Remote Imaging Program

Remote Imaging Program


We have formed a partnership with Global Rent-a-Scope to offer my telescope along with 7 other telescopes as part of a 24/7 world wide global telescope network. My system can still be access via Global Rent-a-Scope. The name of my telescope is known as “AREO8” on the Global Telescope Network.
