    Astronomy.fm is offering a free trial to the site Björn lists below if
    you sign up with them.  No charge.  I quote:
    
    "Registration does not require a credit card or any commitment from
    you. At the end of your trial, you will be able to upgrade to a
    full-use GRAS account that will let you access all of their
    telescopes."
