The fee for a Public Image Request is a donation in the amount of $10.00 USD via PayPal or Credit Card. All proceeds are applied to the continuing efforts of funding of Insight Observatory's own ATEO-1 remote telescope's hosting and maintenance costs at its dark site located at an elevation of 7,778 ft. in New Mexico. 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 by visiting its FAQ page.
