[99.02] Remote Observing with the Pomona College 1-meter telescope

B. Penprase (Pomona College)

We summarize our operations during the past year with our 1-meter Pomona College telescope located in Wrightwood California at the Table Mountain site . New programs for observing GRB host galaxies, and monitoring open clusters for potential planetary transits are described. The remote observing makes use of the ACE control system, and we summarize the performance and operation of our telescope from its mountain site using campus internet links. During the year the telescope is used extensively in laboratory classes, and we describe some of the curricular impact the facility has had for our students.
