Remote Telescope Hosting

Roll-On sheds for robotic telescopes available now!

Since 2004, SaharaSky has established a solid reputation as the 1st and only "on-site" private observatory starting with a 200mm GPS telescope Meade LX200. Today we have installed two GM2000 HPS and QCI mounts, a 400mm and 350mm Meade ACF Starlock Telescope, a Takahashi FSQ ED 106mm and two William FLT and EDs. Plus a Dobson Lightbridge 16 and Coronado 60Hα for observation.

Effective now, we add remote astro-imaging & hosting affordable for the average amateur astronomer.
