    Default Astronomy with ACP in the 21st century

    I recently took out my iPhone and using the brilliant ACP web interface scheduled my nights work on a telescope in New Mexico. Pretty spiffy, eh? Well the mind boggling kicker is that I was seated on an airplane 36000 feet over Ohio at the time! Virgin/America (and some others) now offer WiFi service on their airplanes. When that task was done I used an iPhone VNC ap to copy files between pc's in Boston and New Mexico then settled back to listen to music coming to me from a computer on my desk at home.

    I'd like to give a personal standing ovation to Bob for his inspiration and tireless hard work in creating a software suite that is in a league of it own.

    Since my trip Bob has taken another large step with Scheduler 3. I've been privileged to try the beta and its superb Web Ap also runs on the iPhone!

    Great story George. I just picked up a Scheduler license myself. I have virtually the whole month of March planned out.

    Now I just need to drop in some fun time with the Messier Marathon.
