In order to register with the National Schools' Observatory (NSO), you must teach at a school in the UK or Ireland.

Once registered, teachers can create individual user accounts for students at their school. All registered users gain access to the Liverpool Telescope (LT), all NSO software and the entire LT image archive.

School registrations are currently supported by Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU), which means that schools in the UK and Ireland can join for free.

To register, fill in the form below.
