Remote observing at Effelsberg

Remote observing on the 100-meter telescope is possible via VNC.

This is possible from within the MPIfR-LAN as well as from outside via an ssh-tunnel.

If you want to do remote observations for the first time, please contact Uwe Bach ( or Alex Kraus ( well in advance of your observations.

People from abroad without an account at the MPIfR, might get a guest account (for a limited time) on request.

For running remote observations, you should have some observing experience at the 100-m-telescope!

All necessary details can be found here: Remote Observing (restricted access)
