Slooh's telescopes are much better quality and have automated cameras attached to them which are necessary to see faint objects in space. Slooh's online telescopes are also situated on mountain tops above the clouds and away from light pollution, problems that make exploring space impossible for most people. You'll be learning to control telescopes just like professional astronomers, via a computer interface, which will help you get into college or join the Space Force someday. Plus, you won't be doing it alone--you'll find support from a worldwide community exploring space together.
