  • The Astronomical Telescopes for Educational Outreach (ATEO) - Insight Observatory offers a 16" f/3.7 Dream Astrograph reflector (ATEO-1) located in dark skies and a high elevation of 7,800 feet in New Mexico and a 12.5" f/9 Quasar Ritchey Chretien (ATEO-3) affiliate remote telescope located at a high elevation of 5990 feet in the Rio Hurtado Valley in Chile. These remote telescopes are accessible via our online ATEO Portal for public use as well as on our online Educational Image Request (EIR) application for educational use. 

  • Basic (BIR) and Advanced Image Requests (AIR)There are now two options for accessing Insight Observatory's remote telescope network via the ATEO Portal for requesting image data. One option is "Basic Image Request". This option is similar to the Insight Observatory's retired Personal Image Request application. The difference is there are more imaging parameter options to select on the BIR form. Another option is the "Advanced Image Request". This option allows users to request specific custom image data from Insight's remote telescopes including start date, which telescopes to image on, the number of images, filters to use, exposure lengths, and right ascension and declination coordinate input if needed. Image set requests can also be made on this application for Starbase, Insight Observatory's image set repository.

  • Starbase Image SetsInsight Observatory offers image high-quality sets for those interested in downloading deep-sky and planetary image data from our image set repository, Starbase for processing. These image sets are acquired with the 16" f/3.5 Astrograph reflector (ATEO-1), the 12.5" f/9 Ritchey-Chretien (ATEO-3), and other affiliate remote telescopes designated as AFIL-# on our telescope network. These image sets are accessible for purchase via the ATEO Portal. As we populate our image sets, you may request an image set to be added to Starbase on our "Advanced Image Request" application on the ATEO Portal. Your image set request will be evaluated and if approved, added to the "Starbase" for subscribing as soon as the object has been imaged. Image set subscription rates start as low as $0.02 cents (Standard) and $0.01 cents (Education) per minute of deep-sky data integration from all three ATEO remote telescopes as well as our network of affiliate remote telescopes.

  • Educational Image Request (EIR) - Designed and implemented for school teachers (K-12), Insight Observatory offers this access form allowing students to acquire images on the ATEO telescope network for the classroom environment.

  • Interstellar Print - Purchase high-quality prints and digital downloads of astronomical objects such as galaxies, nebulae, star clusters, and just about everything in between. All of the images in this library were processed by image data acquired on Insight Observatory’s Astronomical Telescopes for Educational Outreach (ATEO) remote telescope network.

  • Planning and Facilitating Research Projects in the field of Astronomy - Providing the tools necessary for astronomy education, and, discovery and research, utilizing Remote Robotic Telescopes. Work with Insight Observatory to design custom classroom astronomy lessons that coincide with your teaching curriculum.
