The OpenScience Observatories operate a number of astronomical telescope facilities. At the Observatorio del Teide in Tenerife we own two optical telescopes, COAST (COmpletely Autonomous Service Telescope), and PIRATE (the Physics Innovations Robotic Telescope Explorer), and an associated weather station. At the Open University campus in Milton Keynes we have a small radio telescope, ARROW (A Robotic Radio telescope Over the Web), and the George Abell Observatory for on-site training.

In addition to teaching on Open University modules our academics are engaged in ground breaking research that benefits individuals and society.
