We have gathered a few Portuguese fellow astronomers to fund a Facebook group
called iTelescope Portugal. Each member contributes with a small amount of money
every month to use iTelescope remote telescopes, mainly in the southern hemisphere
as for the northern hemisphere each member has her/his own equipment. At the end of
an acquisition session the resulting data is distributed for each member of the group
and each one is responsible and has the respective copyright of her/his final work.

This image has been acquired remotely from Siding Spring in Australia using
iTelescope remote telescope 33. Details are as follow:
