Remote observing

The technical implementation of remote observing, where the remote observer is actually controlling the telescope very much like on Pico Veleta, was described in the last Newsletter. A series of practical tests is currently being made from Grenoble, so far with encouraging results. We expect this observing mode to be available next winter in Grenoble for technically easy projects by experienced 30m users. They should note ``remote observing'' as a special requirement in the proposal cover sheet.
