Remote Control System and Internet Technology at Misato Observatory
We have developed a remote control system of a telescope at Misato observatory in Japan. The system has user-friendly interface on a web page. Left side of the web user interface is the control panel of the telescope. Right side of the web user interface is a live image by PipeCam (tentative name). Every student can control the telescope easily from remote site, and can see live images of celestial bodies. If this system is used from high schools in western countries such as Europe or U.S.A., the students can see live images of celestial bodies in the school hours. If this system is used from southern countries such as Australia, the students can see northern celestial bodies that is never seen from those countries. Therefore this system will contribute science education internationally.
