香港遙控天文台 ( Hong Kong Remote Telescope )

近年天文同好除了在香港拍攝星空, 還長途拔涉去大陸遠離光害的高山如廣東梅洲拍攝, 有時更遠赳新疆, 台灣, 歐洲和澳洲等地, 慕求找到天空好,
大氣透明度高, 漆黑一遍的理想地點. 但, 往往受制於當日天氣, 天工造美, 否則便空手而回, 不單損失了金錢, 更白白浪費了寶貴的假期.

為了香港天文同好可以不受地域限制, 不受香港天氣影響, 我和一位天文同好商量, 成立一間天文遙控望遠鏡租賃公司, 好讓同好們足不出戶也可以
利用座落於北半球和南半球的望遠鏡拍攝星空.
我們的宗旨是:
(一) 提高天文攝影藝術的層次
(二) 經審核委員會批準, 專業天文學家可免費收集有用數据作科學研究用途

香港遙控天文台由香港天文儀器公司管理.
租用望遠鏡為每月約US$1300至US$2700, 六個月合約, 先交一個月按金, 已交費用恕不退回. 拍攝所得原始資料為租用者所擁有, 用途不受限制.
詳細使用條款 (英文) 列於文章尾段.

歡迎香港, 內地和台灣天文愛好者使用, 因為本計劃衹收回成本, 所以暫時不接受外國同好申請.

現時香港遙控天文台, 位於北半球美國新墨西哥洲的望遠鏡有8套, 位於南半球澳洲的望遠鏡有7套, 全部附設CCD 攝影機, 濾鏡, 高穩定腳座 主要為
Paramount ME, 座落於可移動上蓋天文台 ( roll-off observatory ), 和圓頂室 ( dome) 內.
