History

iTelescope.Net began its operations with a single telescope in New Mexico 2002. It has steadily grown to encompass three continents. Operating many research grade instruments at prime night sky sites for its thousands of registered members.

iTelescope.Net is a "Self Funding" Internet Based Observatory directing the vast majority of its profits towards reinvestment into its growing network with new Telescopes, Instruments, Observatories, Operational Features & Equipment constantly being added for the benefit of its large time sharing memberships.

Enablers

The entire iTelescope Network is controlled via the Internet. Nothing more than an Internet browser is required by its members to remotely control the telescopes. iTelescope.Net has enabled amateur astronomers & students from all over the world to gather prize winning stellar portraits, the discovery & research of minor planets, novae, comets and exo-planets.

We have a close working relationship with the ANU RSAA and operate with them in an official partnership at our Australian SSO site. We also have working ties with AAVSO, MPC and academic institutions far & wide.
