Heres my 2 cents worth:
If an image was taken remotely, on equipment the imager didnt set up, then if entered into an imaging comp it should be in a separate remote imaging category.

I have only used the GRAS system thus far. The problem is, scope time isnt just imaging time, its slewing, focusing, locating guide stars and so on. Sometimes it seems to take an eternity for it to get focus and search for a guide star. You can rotate the guider but that takes even more time. With Lightbuckets, if you send in an imaging request to be done later, I wonder if youre charged for the imaging time, or everything else as well?

As for my own images, if I can get an object with more detail then I can see visually, and with round stars in good focus ,I consider it a sucess
