AbstractAstronomers now communicate over Internet with robotic astronomical telescopes using a specially designed instruction set. ATIS, Automatic Telescope Instruction Set, is designed to communicate specific, technical instructions to a robotic telescope, facilitate data retrieval and analysis, support a wide range of data formats, and also convey preference information that describe the astronomers general needs for data acquisition. Over a dozen telescopes now use ATIS and more are under construction.
