    We discuss our experiences operating a heterogeneous global network of autonomous observatories. The observatories are presently situated on four continents, with a fifth expected during the summer of 2010. The network nodes are small to intermediate diameter telescopes (<= 150 cm) owned by different institutions but running the same observatory control software. We report on the experience gained during construction, commissioning and operation of the observatories, as well as future plans. Problems encountered in the construction and operation of the nodes are summarised. Operational statistics as well as scientific results from the observatories are also presented.
