How can you shoot the night sky from your home computer while you eat your lunch? Global-Rent-a-Scope (GRAS) can make it happen. This service has instruments in New Mexico, Israel, and Australia — all accessible from a computer. GRAS provides a unique opportunity for skywatchers to tour a section of the sky they may have never observed.

In this week's show, GRAS Director Arnie Rosner provides some insight into his remote_controlled arsenal of equipment.
