Choose which membership option that suits your needs and register.
Silver is free for life and as simple as PAYGO
Gold costs €200 a year but you will save a significant amount on the ongoing hourly rate you pay, most people opt for gold as it offers attractive savings if you do more than just casual remote imaging
Rhodium Membership is a little different as you get use of the whole observatory complex in some shape of form but it does cost €5000 a year

Choose your object by name or coordinates
Pick which on of our systems suits your needs we have plenty to choose from with wide ranging FOV and focal lengths
You're the imager, so you choose all your own requirements - total integration time, filters and individual sub lengths
Pricing is by the hour - You only pay for your total imaging time. You do not pay for plate solving, focusing or even guider settling
Relax - we got you, our automated systems then calculate the best times to gather your data. We take horizons and the moon avoidance so your never imaging to close to the moon or to low down.
Download your data - it will be in your "My Dashboard" area
Data remains on our servers for 2-4 weeks.
Process in to a masterpiece!

We recommend joining/using Telescopius as a wonderful free resource for choosing objects when remote deep sky imaging, if you join this site you will be able to add our location in favourites as well as your home location. At a glance you will see what deep sky objects are available, visual representations, what times they rise, set & how high they get. This website also has even more powerful tools like adding telescopes, Cameras and FOV’s which will help plan your imaging goals with Roboscopes :)
After you have placed your order your image request will be added to our system which prioritises orders based on an algorithm that takes into account lots of factors like;
Moon below horizon
Rising & Setting times
Moon avoidance in relation to chosen filters
Broadband filters orders generally take longer to complete than narrowband orders as the moon has less of an impact with narrowband imaging which allows you to gather more narrowband data throughout the month. Hydrogen Alpha for instance is very forgiving even with a full moon.
Depending upon some of the above as well as weather and sky conditions it may take anything from 7-28 days to deliver your data so when booking please use foresight and don’t book an object setting on the west not long after astronomical dark or one that only rises to 30degree above the horizon for 90 minutes. In essence be smart about it 😀
Please choose objects that are rising or on the east side or closer to the meridian. If on the west side make sure they are placed high in the sky as it will give us the ability to complete your order in a timely manner. If however, you still book an object while ignoring our recommendations we will do our best to fufill your request unless we feel it is an impossible task.
Our booking form will give suggestions for sub lengths for each filter depending on type of target you choose, LRGB Narrowband, Dark nebular etc. Expert users will obviously choose there own sub lengths
The booking form also contains field of view as well as pixel scale measurements
Our equipment page has real world examples of the FOV using well known objects to help with subject selection.
Online library of calibration files for standard sub lengths, special calibration files lengths are available upon request
Upon completion of your order you will be emailed a link to download your data from, this link will remain live for 2 weeks
Please be aware our booking form is charged by the hour, if you choose over 3600seconds in total in imaging time you will be charged for the next full hour on so on!
Each pier has a FREE standard dark library that correlate to the most common subs lengths used, if you choose more individual sub lengths then please add darks to your imaging run in checkout
