Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


We present the development from its origin to the implementation of new hardware and software for telescope control. This system has been designed to be adaptable to old decommissioned telescopes. We will show how we applied a low-cost system to refurbish three telescopes belonging to the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile to allow their remote and automatic use with a web-based interface.
