We host your telescope under the best sky in Chile!
Deep Sky Chile has selected the best astronomical site in Chile to host your remotely operated telescope: a 3 hectares flat mountain top over 5590 feet high (1700m), far from all light pollution and with exceptional seeing conditions. Our fully robotic observatories are solar powered, have High Speed internet access and are equipped with last generation security and notification systems… We are hosting our clients telescopes since February 2019. We are currently building a third collective observatory which will be able to accommodate 15 additional telescopes, and several private observatories.

Why Rio Hurtado Valley?
We have traveled all over Chile to find the best site to host your telescope. We tested the skies of Atacama and the Elqui Valley, both enjoying a good reputation among astronomers. However, we have noticed that these places have become very touristy and that the authorities are not taking any special measures to limit increasing light pollution. Rio Hurtado valley remained protected. Far away from the big cities, but easily accessible, it offers the darkest skies and the best conditions we have found in Chile. If you still doubt, remember that we share the same sky as Cerro Tololo, Gemini South and the brand new Vera C. Rubin (LSST) observatories…
