JCMT shifts to Remote Operations

JCMT has began a new era. Starting November 1st all data obtained at the JCMT will be observed remotely from Hilo. The first night of Remote Observing was staffed by JCMT Telescope Operator Mimi Fuchs.

JCMT astronomers who obtain data on a given night will now receive an automated email to inform them of observation being taken. At that time users are welcome to “eavesdrop” on operations by joining a remote connection directly to the JCMT Remote Observing Control room (JROC) in Hilo via the link provided in the automated email.
