Access Telescopes

Listed here are the various ways of accessing Insight Observatory's network of remote robotic imaging telescopes for educational and public use...

  • Astronomical Telescopes for Educational Outreach (ATEO) Portal - Acquire deep-sky and planetary image data using Insight Observatory's remote telescope network. ATEO Portal users may either submit a "Basic Image Request" using built-in imaging parameter options or create an "Advanced Image Request" allowing users to input specifically customized imaging parameters.

  • Starbase Image Set Subscriptions - Starbase is a repository of image data captured by the Astronomical Telescopes for Educational Outreach (ATEO) and our affiliate remote telescopes (AFIL), organized by the image target into image “sets”. These image sets can be purchased (referred to as “subscribing” to the image set) and downloaded. If you are interested in requesting an image set of a specific target for Starbase, please log into the ATEO Portal and select the "Starbase" check box at the bottom of the Advanced Image Request application.

  • Educational Image Request (EIR) form - The Educational Image Request form is used primarily for accessing Insight Observatory's remote telescopes for educational use in the classroom (grades K-12) and public venues such as public libraries. If you are interested in utilizing the ATEO network of remote telescopes in your classroom or public venue, please Contact Us.

  • Patreon "Explorer" Tier Subscription - If you are only interested in receiving processed images from all 6 remote telescopes, you may subscribe to our "Explorer" tier as a patron on Insight Observatory's Patreon Page for ONLY $3.00 USD per month. Your monthly subscription will include exclusive blog posts and updates with images taken by our staff and users (with their consent and full credit).

    All Patreon patron subscriber proceeds go towards supporting Insight Observatory's educational outreach efforts.

  • Interstellar PrintPurchase 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 our library were processed by image data acquired on Insight Observatory’s Astronomical Telescopes for Educational Outreach (ATEO) remote telescope network.
