Bradford Robotic Telescope

I have tried using the Bradford robotic telescope, which is located in West Yorkshire, UK. According to the website, the robotic observatory is managed by Bradford U, and located in the Canary Islands, Spain. “The Bradford Robotic Telescope installation is part of the Observatorio del Teide site of the Instituto De Astrofisica De Canarias, in Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain. The Teide Observatory is the best in Europe and is situated at an altitude of 2,400 metres (7,874 feet) on the northern part of the volcano caldera” (BRI, 2010). This is a free, public system for everyone to use, especially public and private schools. I just got my image request, a pic of Saturn, after one month. Either it is that busy or the weather was bad. I believe it is a combination of both. The image of Saturn was not good, but my testing continues.

Here is a picture of Saturn that I requested. It is not spectacular…
