Hi all. We had a local virtual astronomy observing session with a remotely operated telescope at Monkton Nature reserve (Thanet in Kent) hosted using Microsoft Team meeting. there were a dozen of the Monkton Stargazer group present. Wonderful experience with the chit chat and pointing the telescope to an object, taking an image and post processing whilst we all watched. I would recommend any group if they can share a screen which is controlling a telescope to work this way and invite others to view.
