I have been into astronomy for over 30 years. I own three telescopes and 2 pairs of binoculars. So, what do I think about Slooh.com? Well, Slooh is a great site. I will recommend this site to anybody starting from someone that knows nothing about astronomy and to an avid, enthusiastic hobbyist. $49 a year for a basic membership is a fair and very reasonable price. Although, Slooh.com is fairly new it already has an array of very impressive telescopes and CCD cameras. And from what I read they will be updating their equipment and adding new locations around the globe. So, in time, members will be able to observe 24 hours a day! However, for those of you that never used a telescope, a warning. The image you will see while using Slooh.com and the image through a telescope will be different for most of the objects. In my opinion, some objects look better though a telescope and other objects look better at Slooh.com (long exposure photographs).

Anyway, based on a cost of a membership and what you get for it, I will rate this site as a 10.
