New facilities being tested
The new facility, COAST, is finally connected to telescope.org! We are in a phase of beta testing with a group of experienced telescope.org users. If you are a previous user and would like to get involved in the test phase please drop us an email. We are not currently accepting any new sign-ups, but we are working towards opening telescope.org for a period of free use in the near future.
