The network

Forget about cloudy skies

It took us four years, travelling thousands of kilometers, crossing deserts and mountains, visiting hundreds of locations in both hemispheres in order to find the best homes for our telescopes. We partnered with the best suppliers to choose and select every single component of our telescopes. All that in order to build the best network of professional telescopes around the globe and under the best dark skies. A network that is now at your service.
