Computing at UCLO

The Observatory has two computer-equipped classrooms and a number of PCs to control our telescopes and astronomical cameras.

All classroom PCs are dual-boot and run MS-Windows and Linux (Ubuntu). Their use is governed by rules and regulations. Each classroom has printers for student use.

User data is held on a central server and backed up daily. Files can be recovered by the sytem administrator up to six months after deletion.

The Linux-based computing resources at UCLO are accessible over the internet via remote login.

If you have any issues regarding hardware or software please contact Thomas Schlichter, the UCLO Computing and Instrumentation Officer.
