Abstract Information:

Designing new facilities for Remote, Autonomous, or standard telescope usage has many aspects. We are presently designing three identical observatories for remote, semi-unattended observing. This poster paper will present a detailed list of the features of these facilities and discuss many of the things we have seen done correctly and the many things we have seen done wrong with other observatories. It is hoped that this poster paper will be useful for the discussion on these facilities to be held at the conference.
