Would you like to explore the many treasures of the famous Messier Catalogue from home? Would you like to see as many of them as possible, in a single night? This is what is called a Messier Marathon!

After the unprecedent success of the 2010 edition, even for Global Astronomy Month 2011 (GAM2011, April 2011), we will offer an online Messier Marathon, using our robotic telescopes, providing real time images and live comments. All this while chatting and sharing your passion and excitement with friends from all around the world.

To join this free event, you will just need to access the Virtual Telescope Webpage at the date/time shown above.
