Today I was able to continue using this magical telescope in Australia. Scope was operated by Bert Candusio locally and I used the control computer with VNC.

Yesterday I subscribed as a user for Northern Galactic Group’s remote control telescope. Today I was able to use 16″ RCOS Truss f/9 telescope on Paramount ME mount equipped with Apogee U9000 CCD for more than 4 hours . The scope and the camera is a VERY POWERFULL combination of imaging equipment, not to forget the mount.
This is only 80 minutes of total exposure of M83. Very basic image processing.
