Abstract
Web-enabled user interfaces for the control and monitoring of instruments and telescopes have a checkered history. However, the remarkable interactive speed and quality of Google Maps and Google Suggests have led us, like others, to take another look at implementing services over the Web. The so-called AJAX mechanism enables simple, lightweight, efficient, and responsive interfaces in nearly any modern Web browser. We discuss methods, security, and other implementation issues for sample interfaces that include telescope monitoring, instrument control, and weather station information.
