Pay As You Go Imaging From Only €7hr
We have always dreamed of having our own remote deep sky imaging setup but could never seem to justify the considerable costs involved in either setting up a single bespoke system, buying the equipment and paying the monthly hosting fees. Our other option would have been paying for time on other peoples remote setups but this also seemed like a lot of money to us on an ongoing basis.
So we decided to do something unique. We opened our own multi pier remote observatory with reasonable rates for the whole world to use.
At a location in Southern Spain, we built our new observatory. We kitted it out with high quality equipment while maintaining our principle of reasonable rates.
The mantra for this project has always been based on the three G’s...
Pier 1 - 10" F/6.8 Dall Kirkham & ZWO 1600MM
Pier 2 - 12" F/6.8 Dall kirkham & 16803 CCD
Pier 3 - ASA 12n F/3.6 & ZWO 2600MM Pro CMOS
Pier 5 - Tak E180 F/2.8 & ZWO 2600MC Pro OSC
Pier 14 - Tak FSQ106 F/3.6 & ZWO 6200MM Pro
Pier 1 & 14 - 10" DK & FSQ106 Combo
Pier 1 & 5 - Epsilon 180 & 10" DK Combo
Pier 2 & 14 - 12" DK & FSQ106 Combo
At Roboscope's we have 6 different syndicate memberships to choose from, some single pier and some dual pier options which give you the best of both worlds with short and long focal length imaging.
Syndicates are the most cost effective way of remote deep sky imaging as well as in my opinion the most social, you become part of a like minded team where you discuss what your pier images, help each other with processing techniques and banter in your own dedicated forum section.
Syndicates start from €700pa As a member you have access to all the data the pier produces not to mention you can plan with other members what the pier images on an ongoing basis. For a syndicate member you get the best of everything without the expense of placing expensive equipment in a remote location with all the ongoing associated fees!
