Computer Accounts for Mount Locke Visitors
Observers and visitors are assigned computer accounts based on the instrument and telescope being used. For new visitors
we will build a new account on these machines only, and assign a temporary password which may be obtained upon arrival. Once
on site you must change the password as soon as possible. We cannot transmit the password to you by insecure means.
The account name will typically be the same as your Austin astro account unless you specify differently in your rfs. For other
visitors we will use your email user name from your rfs form, unless advised otherwise, if it does not conflict with an existing
If you are bringing your own computer/laptop there is DHCP access in each dome and at the Astronomer's Lodge. There also is wireless access
in some parts of the Lodge including the dining room.
If you find you have problems or need assistance with your account, please notify Observing Support Computing staff for
resolution of the problem.
