What, do you think astronomy research still consists of looking through a telescope and sketching what you see?
Universities rent telescope time from observatories, using the grants that GG failed to bring in. Its all done from far away, no physical access is required. The telescope itself would be monitored by a few techs, but it mostly runs automatically.
It doesn't matter where the university is located. You can request pictures from anywhere in the world.
