Host your telescope in Chile and control it remotely
The best sky in Chile!
At Deep Sky Chile, we truly believe we have found the best astronomical site in Chile to host your remotely operated telescope. It is a flat mountain top over 5590 feet (1700m) high, far from all light pollution, with amazing seeing conditions and high-speed internet. The site is equipped with green power, high security and so much more…
We are already able to host 22 telescope systems in our first two shared observatories.
Share an observatory or have your own
We are able to host your telescope in one of our collective’s observatories (8 to 14 places per obs) or give you the opportunity to have your own private observatory!
Why Rio Hurtado Valley?
We, at Deep Sky Chile, chose to settle in Rio Hurtado’s area for good reasons. We travelled all around Chile to find the best site to host telescopes. We tested the skies of Atacama and the Elqui valley, which both have excellent worldwide reputations. Although those places are much better than many others are in the Southern hemisphere, they both are becoming very touristy and are not able to avoid increasing light pollution.
The Rio Hurtado Valley does not have this issue and offers the best sky and conditions in Chile. The proximity of Cerro Tololo and Gemini South observatories also give us the confidence that light pollution will not affect us for a very long time.
