AstroPodcast this week talks to 3 members of the Project Solaris team who are setting up automated robotic telescopes in Australia, South Africa and Argentina to look for planets orbiting binary stars. Piotr Sybilski, Stanisław Kozłowski & Rafal Konrad Pawlaszek  talk about who they are, the project and their thoughts about the countries they have visited while setting everything up.

It was raining so no open dome
Update: The guys leave Australia in under a week after completing all tasks. While they don’t have any pictures from the Solaris telescope to share yet, they promise they will for their next podcast interview with AstroPodcast – some time next year.  Th following gorgeous pictures were taken by Stan from the team. If you are interested in helping the team with the SaaS they want to build then head over to their contact page.
