Astronomical observatories are often installed in remote and isolated places to avoid light pollution. In this article we will see how EAGLE helps control the remote observatory starting from the example of the Cortina Astronomical Association that has an important astronomical observatory in Col Drusciè, at 1,780 meters above sea level above Cortina d'Ampezzo (Italy). The entire observatory can be remotely controlled via the Internet thanks to a sophisticated and innovative "Sky on the Web" Internet control system, which allows control of remote observatory: from pointing, to imaging, to weather emergency management, up to archiving and downloading images on home computer.
Much more than a computer!
