Remote observing

This observing mode where the remote observer actually controls the telescope very much like on Pico Veleta, used to be available from the downtown Granada office, from the MPIfR in Bonn, from the ENS in Paris, from the OAN in Madrid (near Parque de Retiro), and from IRAM in Grenoble. However, due to the transition to the telescope's new control system, remote observing will not be operational during several months. Observers are strongly encouraged either to consider service observing for short ($\leq8$ h) and simple proposals, to participate in a pool, or to come to the telescope.
