Hi Doug – Very pleased to hear that your library group is interested in getting involved in using telescopes on the Las Cumbres Observatory (LCO) network. There is a BAA Robotic Telescope Project that looks to encourage amateurs to pursue observing projects on remote scopes, so if you are seriously interested then there are lots of potential targets (comets and asteroids are usually very fruitful) – in some ways, the main difficulty is in deciding what is a worthwhile target to go after. Ask the Perton folk where their interests lie and let us know. We are currently setting up a small panel under the auspices of the BAA RTP to provide guidance of this kind.
Chat again soon,
