Global Telescope Network Website DLESE Reviewed Collection
This Web site contains information for both partners (those with their own telescopes) and associates (those who wish to use a network telescope.) The purpose of the Global Telescope Network (GTN) is to use small telescopes to obtain ground-based observations of high-energy objects of interest to Swift, GLAST (renamed Fermi in 2008) and XMM-Newton missions. It is used both by formal educators working with students and by amateur astronomers.
