Pay As You Go Imaging From Only $7hr

Welcome to Roboscopes

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...

  • Great Location

  • Great Data

  • Great Prices

Membership Options

  • Silver - Free

  • Gold - Subscribed

  • Platinum - Subscribed

If you choose to be a free member simply image away using our competitive Pay As You Go pricing rates. However, if you become a  Gold or Platinum member of Roboscopes, then you will benefit from discounted hourly rates forever.

User Friendly Booking

We have built a simple but powerful booking page that's easy to use for all levels of experience, with helpful suggestions as well as the ability to use common names like M31 etc rather than having to use coordinates.

It has recommendations for sub lengths as well as calibration files and an easy to follow filter weighting guide.

Whether you're an imaging God or just starting out with deep sky imaging, Roboscopes want to deliver a great experience at a reasonable cost.

  • Low walls to take advantage of our superb horizons

Remote Spanish Location

  • 560 meters above sea level

  • Skies that hover around 21.5 SQM, peaking at 22 SQM on occasions

  • Seeing is 1-2 on average

  • Long nights & dark skies even during mid summer thanks to our lower latitude
