    Hi gurus,

    I am faced with spending 3k on a web based telescope control program or alternatively allowing customers to access the telescope control computer and applicatgion via remote desktop (ultra vnc). Is there a way to do this easily?


    Thanks,

    Paul

    I'm interested in knowing more about the telescope.

    I'm of no help, just am interested. Are you looking at stars?

    Hi there,

    Yes it is a amateur telescope observatory located in Reno, NV. The most unique part of the installation is the camera. Using plans I found online, I modified an existing DSLR and added a thermoelectric cooler to produce an imager capable of detecting the most faint nebulae and galaxies.

    cya,

    Paul

    Wow, sounds great. VNC sounds like it would be the way to go -- are you looking for an alternative? I'd also recommend checking out www.logmein.com. It's also free and would allow you to create individual accounts for users, each with their own password. That might make it easier if you ever want to remove someone's access to the machine. The only problem with either VNC or LogMeIn is that one remote user could "step on" another (i.e. they'd both be trying to use the machine at the same time). LogMeIn will display a warning to the second user.
