The current OpenScience Observatories, PIRATE and COAST, were not the first observatories to be associated with telescope.org. These facilities are the successors to previous work done at the University of Bradford on fully autonomous, remote access observatories as well as previous incarnations of the PIRATE telescope in Majorca, run by the Open University.
