[102.20] Internet Telescope Performance Requirements

F. M. Melsheimer (DFM Engineering, Inc.)

Abstract: Efficient operation of an astronomical telescope over the internet by a remote user requires a high level of performance from the telescope, instruments, support facilities and the control system. The needed performance is partially determined by the focal length of the telescope, the site properties, and the remote user requirements. In this paper we develop the basic pointing, tracking, and focus stability requirements and discuss how they interact with the remote users of the system.
