Build your own research telescope: Project PANOPTES

Project PANOPTES is a program geared towards citizen science. It is designed so that people with a knack for building and a passion for astronomy can create their very own robotic telescope to make authentic scientific observations on transiting exoplanets. The building of these telescopes requires basic knowledge of power tools an electrical skills like soldering and wiring. The components required to make this telescope are easily accessible and come at a relatively low cost. Check out these links to find out more about how you can become involved with Project PANOPTES.
