Beeing not that easy to get alltogether on a regular basis, we decided to start some small working groups, like nodes. Here is a first step toward "world domination"...
After a few weeks of miscellaneous activities and a lot of talks between the interested members, we gained some good bases to start building.

The remote telescope control center as described in the next line, has been canceled. At least for now.

It all started by an old camper shell, that was waitting for the dump, or simply forgoten. What if we use it as our remote telescope control center ?
October 2002 (project stop and canceled).

Nous avons choisi d'utiliser cette ancienne coque de camionette pour salle de commande de notre projet.

Fabrication d'un bureau - etabli, qui va nous servir a la realisation de noter projet.

As the project seems expensive (we hopped we would be able to raise the funds needed much quicker) and complex, we decided to practice and apply our knowledge on a few smaller projects first. which is also a good idea regarding to our "social project".
June 2003.

Le project nous semble complique, nous avons d'autres issues a adresser avant, aussi nous avons decide d'implementer les techniques destinees au telescope sur des objects plus simple de realisation, puis de les addapter plus tard a notre project principal. Ceci est aussi une bonne idee a notre "vocation sociale".
