These webcams are installed on the territory of The Gemini Observatory in Hawaii. This observatory gives almost full coverage of the northern sky and is located on Hawaii’s sleeping volcano Mauna Kea at the height of 4200 metres.

Observatory’s main telescope, so called Gemini North, is operated since 2000.

The other telescope, called Gemini South, is located on a mountain in the Chilean Andes and provides complete coverage of the Southern Hemisphere.
