[122.04] Fly-By-Wire Astronomy: Experiences in Remote Observing at the SARA Observatory

M. A. Wood (Florida Institute of Technology), SARA Collaboration

The Southeastern Association for Research in Astronomy (SARA) operates a 0.9 m telescope at Kitt Peak National Observatory. We now routinely operate the facility remotely from the six SARA Member Institutions -- Florida Institute of Technology, East Tennesee State University, Florida International University, the University of Georgia, Valdosta State University, and Clemson University. I'll report on our experiences with this mode of operation and our plans for the future.
