The fee for a Personal Image Request is a donation ranging from $15.00 to $25.00 USD (depending on the telescope used) via PayPal or Credit Card. All proceeds are applied to the continuing efforts of funding of Insight Observatory's three remote telescopes' hosting, maintenance, and affiliate costs. 

Once your image request is submitted, the request will then be inserted into the ATEO remote telescope's network queue. When the image has been processed and uploaded, an email will be sent to you with instructions on how to retrieve your image. You can find more information on using the PIR form by visiting its FAQ page.
