National Schools Observatory

When the Liverpool Telescope was in development, it was decided to allocate 5% of the observing time to schools in the UK and Ireland. As it is no easy task to control a robotic telescope, the National Schools' Observatory (NSO) was created to act as a link between schools and the telescope.

The NSO is a website built around a Go Observing interface that allows teachers and students to request, download and analyse images of objects in space taken by the telescope.
