In collaboration with LCO, we have been awarded 100 hours of telescope time on their 0.4-meter system of telescopes, and 90 minutes of time goes to each teacher. The 90 minutes will allow you to take 7-9 images depending on the object you are imaging.
Unlike an IASC asteroid search campaign, this program is designed for teachers to engage their students in the science of astronomy by examining and discussing images of deep sky objects, planets and minor planet bodies (asteroids and comets).

If you are interested in participating in the 100-for-100 project, please contact IASC at: iascsearch@hsutx.edu.

Visit the link below to acquire images through the 100-for-100 LCO Collaboration program. Each school gets 90 minutes of telescope time. You will be emailed when your images are ready to be collected.
