We're very excited to offer you membership via our Group Accounts Program. These special accounts are designed to allow a project leader or teacher work and support those under their guidance. To assist you in getting started with the group account, we have created a couple of FAQs that should make your first few days with iTelescope as easy as possible.
Please take a look at the following FAQs:
The 'Launchpad' is your portal to the entire network of telescopes, please login to this page using your username and password. It contains all of the information you need to know from observatory availability to the lastest weather and sky conditions. You can access the launchpad via https://go.itelescope.net, we suggest you bookmark this link.
We have a series of short video tutorials on how to use the launchpad.
Our Launchpad supports Chrome, Firefox and Safari. If you are using Internet Explorer and the Launchpad formatting looks wrong, please check our Internet Explorer Compatibility FAQ.
We support a minimum of 60 second exposures on all systems, and as such, only have dark frames at a minimum of 60 seconds. In some cases you can image at lower exposure times, so please check our Minimum Exposure Times FAQ for more information.
We also use both external and internal guiding which affects optimum and maximum exposure times. For our Internally guided systems (Those on Ascension A200 Mounts), the maximum exposure time is 600 seconds. For Externally guided systems, please keep all exposures under 300 seconds. Please see our Exposure Times FAQ for more information.
For more information on Optimum and Maximum guiding for each system, please see the individual telescopes on our Telescope Information Page.
