----------
King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology �KACST� supports both the scientific and technical parts of astronomical observations in Saudi Arabia. KACST uses both fixed and mobile observatories for this task. Due to the huge area of the Saudi Arabia and the paucity of the astronomers a small remote observatories are needed to cover the major areas of the country.

This paper discusses the very much need to establish mobile observatories in the country and shows the high accurate results achieved from the observations made for the Crescent moon, Jupiter and some other sky objects using small mobile observatories at different areas in Saudi Arabia Comparing with the calculated results obtained from the software
