Fully automated

The observatories are heavily automated to be able to use the nights as effectively as possible. You simply insert the targets you want to be imaged, and the system will choose the ideal moment to gather your data.

Perfect locations

We are in some of the darkest and most pristine locations of the world. Especially in Namibia we enjoy way over 200 clear nights per year with exceptional seeing.

Competitive costs

We are hobby astronomers ourselves and enjoy gathering data, too. We want to share the equipment to help pay for the running costs (like power, hosting costs and maintenance) but not to make profit, so our costs are way lower than other offers on the net.

Latest preview Images

Look here at some real preview images (uncalibrated) made the last days by our systems.


We do want to give everybody the possibility to use these professional-grade systems.

The rates are per hour of observatory usage, and are calculate down to per-second accuracy. The usage begins when the system starts one request, and it ends when it is done with it. Usually, focusing is done before starting the plan so you won't (except explicitely requesting another focus run) pay for that.

Moon Illumination Hourly Rate
