The global network of GRAS of telescopes is world class in every respect. My first experience of the G13 telescope in South Australia produced an awe-inspiring image of the Triffid Nebula.

Today, GRAS announced an extension of the exciting free, special offer. This will be the first time in the recorded history of humankind, where anyone, with an Internet connected computer, located anywhere on the Earth, will be granted free access to a GRAS remote Telescope. This robotic astronomical ground-based, Hubble-space-telescope-like system, designated as G13, is located in Australia.
Designed for ease of operation, even a child with little or no previous experience can take command of the controls of this ground-based remote astronomical telescope system. All GRAS remote telescope systems operate in a very similar concept to the Hubble space telescope, with the notable exception that these system are ground based.
Observers will marvel over the elegant interface and simple to use controls. Those that take advantage of this free offer will be able to take personal control of the telescope system and capture their own deep space images. This is a special limited offer that may expire at any time. Please be sure to check the time in Australia prior to beginning your imaging sessions. G13 will only operate correctly when it is dark and with weather permitting.
To gain a greater insight as to how the GRAS remote astronomy network functions please click on the following link: GRAS Global Network Gateway. The GRAS information Center, is the gateway to the entire network and also provides access to many other functions of the global network.
GRAS is the world's premiere Global Telescope Network. The network provides access to some of the highest-quality, professional-grade scientific and imaging systems available today.
Over the last 5 years, the subscribers have been deeply engaged in deep-space imaging, narrow-band deep-space imaging, research in areas like, asteroids, double-stars, variable stars, exoplanet, nova search, cannibalistic galaxies, gamma ray busters and comets.
Many subscribers have published their own papers on their respective research. Guided by our own research based support teams, GRAS members have collectively contributed thousands of observations to the many science information repositories around the globe.
When asked about their recent experience with G13, here are a few comments from some recent users:
"Love it!" Ken Gray stated. "Made me go out and buy my own telescope. I will be learning the ropes of astrophotography and having fun with my small refractor and DSLR setup."
Gray added, "And then after that, come back to use the GRAS telescopes hopefully with more skills."
Mark Zaslove commented, "I enjoyed using GRAS, as I'm traveling quite a bit and have no way to image (and it's become an addiction)." Mark continued, "At first, there were some difficulties with using GRAS, but the customer response was first-rate, and I was given extra minutes in compensation. After that, I took some nice pictures which I was able to manipulate in MaxIm and Photoshop."
Zaslove concluded with, "Much fun. I am looking forward in the future to doing some narrow band imaging on your scopes until such a time as I can settle down and set up a permanent observatory of my own."
Finally, Gary Ligget said the following, "The global network of GRAS of telescopes is world class in every respect. My first experience of the G13 telescope in South Australia produced an awe-inspiring image of the Triffid Nebula." Ligget ended his comment with, "GRAS does everything it says on the tin and is backed by lightning speed technical support."
GRAS...for drivers, not passengers!
