Insight Observatory is excited to announce the addition of two new affiliate remote telescopes to its growing network! These remote imaging systems are both wide-field configurations provided by Insight Observatory's affiliate partner, Lukas Demetz from the SkyGems Observatories Network. Both configurations are close to being identical with the exception of the imaging camera. Both are an Officina Stellare Veloce 200 AT, with focal lengths of 600mm and a focal ratio of f/3. The designations of these two additions on Insight Observatory's remote telescope network are AFIL-5 located in Hakos, Namibia and AFIL-6 hosted at AstroCamp in Nerpio, Spain.
