Deep Sky West (DSW) makes remote telescope imaging and telescope hosting affordable for the “average” backyard astrophotographer.
DSW is a remote astrophotography observatory located on 35 acres on Rowe Mesa in Rowe, New Mexico. We offer remote telescope usage and telescope hosting services at our observatories situated at 7,400 feet with dark, transparent skies measuring >21 SQM.
There are 2 ways to get involved:
Host your own system for $700 / month. Go solo, build your own team to share expenses, etc. You operate independently of DSW. We provide support, protection, guidance and advice.
Subscribe to one of our systems starting at $600/year. We shoot targets on behalf of imager from all over the world. All subscribers get all data during their term.
DSW “Alpha” is actually the first of several ”roll off building” observatories (“ROBO”). Beta is under construction now (October 2018).
We’ve created a professional, state-of-the-art, yet affordable and convenient astrophotography environment for you to host your own telescope, join an existing team, or become a subscriber / member of one of our 6 DSW-Operated systems.
