Montgomery Bell
Academy's
Long Mountain
Observatory near
McMinnville, TN.  
The observatory's
computers are now
connected to the
internet, along with  
network power
switches, webcams
and the telescope,
camera, mount and
dome.  They are
operable remotely,
although until
outside cameras
are connected the
dome will not be
opened from a
remote location.

To the right is a
sequence captured
from Nashville
using one of the
webcams in the
dome on May 14,
2011 showing
workmen closing
the classroom roof.
