Undoubtedly, the Virtual Telescope is one of the most active facilities on the planet doing astronomical research. Asteroids, comets, exoplanets, supernovae, novae, gammy-ray bursts and variable stars are just some of the areas where the Virtual Telescope showed its outstanding capabilities.
The amazing reliability and state-of-the-art technologies of the system offer a very quick response and very short reaction time, making the Virtual Telescope capable of top rate science for transient phenomena. The system can be fully, remotely controlled with a smartphone, making it a real “pocket” telescope.
Many scientific contributions on professional journals are reported by the NASA Astrophysics Data System Abstract Service.
Over the last few years, the Virtual Telescope made a huge number of discoveries including asteroids, exoplanets and variable stars.
Below, you will find some of the most interesting ones.
