Request telescope time

Once you have used up your initial allocation of telescope time, you may apply for more using this form. Time is allocated at the discretion of the Faulkes Telescope Project, according to user demand.

Please note: This is NOT an automated procedure, so there may be some delay in you requesting time, and it being granted to you. If you have an URGENT request for time, or you have not received time in your telescope account 3 days or more after requesting it, please email sarah.roberts "at" or alison.tripp "at" to request the time. 

UK Schools and other educational institutions will not be charged for any time awarded.
