Slooh’s online robotic telescopes enable amateur and professional astronomers around the world to take control of the telescopes at their flagship observatory in the Canary Islands, and in Chile. Members can watch their own and other members’ live telescope sessions and capture images from any of the live feeds.

Slooh are giving away a year’s free Apprentice Membership to control the telescopes, along with a copy of their first book, a collection of short space stories entitled The Saturn Above It, and a pair of limited edition eclipse glasses. The Apprentice Membership allows members to control Slooh’s online telescopes and capture photos of the 500 most popular objects in the night sky, as well as the new Slooh Solar Telescope.

We have three gift sets to give away. To be in with a chance of winning one, just answer the following question:
