Learn more about Deep Sky Chile
Most of the time, a great project starts with a simple idea. Ours consists in hosting our clients’ astronomical equipment under the best sky in the world and to remote control it. We chose to build our robotic observatories in the area of Rio Hurtado. We travelled all around Chile to find the best site to host your telescope. We tested the skies of Atacama and the Elqui valley, both of which have an excellent worldwide reputation. 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 control ever-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 gives us the confidence that light pollution will not affect us for a very long time.
We sign pre-sales contracts with our first ten customers.
We build the fence and install the solar power plant. We lay the foundations for the first two observatories.
We start building the first two observatories.
We open the site and receive our customers’ equipment.
