Remote Observatory Operations- All activies are controlled via "Desktop Remote" from inside the house. The X10 system is also used for controlling lights and other various switching. CCD Auto Pilot controls all imaging activies. CCDAP + SkyRoof controls the motorized roof at the end of a run or when bad weather sets in. VB Scripting aids in auto startup and shutdown of all programs, equipment and lighting.
Having three 24" monitors is really great for staying on top of everything that's going on!
