Suggested outline for the article:
- Location —Preceding unsigned comment added by Prad2609 (talk • contribs) 08:48, 14 September 2010 (UTC)
- External Links
- Further Reading
The website of IIA-IAO is quite informative in itself and I believe there would be no value added in reproducing the same information again here..so this article is better left as a Stub with a link to the website.
- I have to disagree. What if that web site goes off line permanently? Also, wikipedia articles can provide a different perspective.—RJH (talk) 22:23, 7 October 2009 (UTC)

- It's a nice start, but I think it would be good to further develop the article. For example, you might mention the benefits of remotely operating the telescopes (winter conditions down to −30 °C, &c.) The telescope descriptions are a little stubby and could be significantly expanded. (For example, see this source.) It would be good to list some details of the telescope structure, including special features, cost, when they were built, completed and the testing results, if known. Finally, please see this, this and this to see if any useful content can be incorporated.
- I hope this was somewhat helpful. Thank you.—RJH (talk) 23:30, 21 January 2011 (UTC)
Here's an informal suggestion. I found the page useful and interesting, but it would be useful to see the IAO placed in the context of other Indian astronomical observatories like the GMRT, and other Indian astronomical institutions like the RRI. Is there some way you can talk about the wider Indian astronomical context? Thanks Annemid (talk) 20:31, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
