About OMI Astro

OMI Optics is an LLC founded in the Bay Area of California in May. 2023, dedicated to providing remote telescope rental services, telescope hosting, and high-quality astrophotographic image data to astronomy enthusiasts and professionals around the globe.

Our Gemini Observatory is located in the suburbs of Lijiang City, Yunnan Province, China, adjacent to the Yunnan Astronomical Observatory of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, where a 2.6-meter optical telescope is operated for scientific research. This proximity means our observatory's observing conditions have undergone rigorous scientific scrutiny. Perched at an altitude of 3,170 meters, the Gemini Observatory boasts exceptional air clarity, with a daytime visual range exceeding 150 kilometers. Its high altitude ensures minimal dust interference, providing a seeing of less than 1" and a peak dark sky measure of 21.3 SQM. With over 220 clear days annually, it's been recognized one of the best astronomical observation sites in Asia.

Currently, the Gemini Observatory hosts 50 sets of astronomical telescopes, equipped with astronomical weather monitoring equipment, all-sky monitoring cameras, backup generators, gigabit fiber-optic internet access, and a dedicated team on-site for technical support.

Remote telescope rental and image data sales are our signature services. We understand the substantial costs associated with serious astrophotography, be it the financial expenses, the time and effort costs etc. We offer our remote telescope services at an competitive hourly rate, along with a variety of pricing plans to cater to different customer needs.

We keep focusing on our product and service quality. We'll be appreciate if you could introduce OMI and share your service experience at OMI to your friends. OMI’s development is impossible without your support. Whether it’s purchasing our services, collaborating, or each piece of advice and feedback, we are immensely grateful for your support!
