Observing with NASA

Robotic telescope control: every amateur astronomer’s dream. Observing with NASA offers FREE telescope control in which you can request telescope observing – select an object to image, and the remote telescope takes the image and the image is emailed to you within 48 hours. This site is aimed towards teachers and K-12 students, but I am using it also. I am testing this out. I have just requested an image of M57 (Ring Nebula) with multi-color filtering with an exposure of 60 seconds. I will post the result here in a few days.
