Can anyone recommend a reliable telescope hosting facility? I am considering closing my own observatory and relocating my equipment (400mm Cassegrain on DDM85XL mount) to a hosting service.

I have contacted several in Spain and the US but most seem to have no spare capacity.

Thanks

HI Nigel,

 

capacity might be an issue. We have two scopes in Astrocamp, Spain and happy there. We also considered to move one scope to another site in Spain (forgot the name) which also seemed very good, but decided to keep things at one place ultimatively.

I do know that US and Australia options are quite expensive...

Thanks Luke. If anyone else knows of hosting facilities with availability I'd be interested to hear.
