Welcome to the
STUDENT TELESCOPE NETWORK homepage
The Student Telescope Network (STN) is a collaborative project to enable
high school students interested in astronomical observing, to access
a telescope with digital camera in a remote dark location via the
internet, and to pursue basic observational research.
There is an amazing variety of stuff out there in the universe, most of
which defies human understanding! To go looking around with the internet
telescope, you first need to have an idea of what's there to
be seen, and what tools you are using to see them.
GET ACQUAINTED WITH THE UNIVERSE:

STN is made possible by the cooperation of:
New Mexico Skies
University of Denver Astronomy
The Youth Activities Committee
of the Astronomical League.
We happily acknowledge sponsorship by the
Toyota Foundation's Institute for Connecting
Science Research to the Classroom.
By entering the galaxy image link above (Enter here!), you can follow the
steps to getting access
to STN01. The process includes tutorials called "Getting Acquainted with
the Universe" that explain what's out there and how the telescope
works; then getting certified to use the internet telescope, and
finally, scheduling time on the internet telescope. We also
recommend some observing projects. Accomplished users can be eligible for
