Welcome Bathurst - AUS Observatory joins iTelescope 

PROMO CODE - Read below

 Have you looked at your  iTelescope.net  launchpad recently? You will notice a new name - Bathurst. Brett Soames and his team, all-round tech geeks, have spent several years setting up their own observatory in Bathurst, New South Wales. A few months ago they were ready for the next step - to go online. iTelescope was a natural choice as partner, and after further intense engineering Bathurst went online on November 1st 2018.    Three telescopes are now online, and more to come.
