Photos Taken Fron Tenerife Without Leaving Keighley

GCSE Astronomy students have had the opportunity to control a robotic telescope and take pictures for their coursework. The session was at Leeds City College Keighley Campus and was led by Dr Ed Hand, from Bradford University and he showed the year 10 group how to take pictures from Mount Teide in Tenerife. The Bradford Robotic Telescope is a collection of instruments that allow schools to take pictures of space, play education games and contact scientists.
