Abstract: When performing on-site or remote observations with a telescope, it is very critical to have a good feedback about the current status of your ongoing observation. Nowadays, web technologies have evolved to allow us to get data in real-time with the advantage of using just a web browser.
In our telescope we found the need of updating our previous outdated monitoring system which is currently showing information about the status of the telescope, the last scans plots, a view of the current weather conditions, etc.
This poster shows how the data visualization has improved by using newer technologies like microservices, websockets and messaging, as well as the structure developed to integrate them successfully in a reliable and more attractive way.
