Zusammenfassung
New generation Cherenkov telescopes cover a wide range of longitudes (137°E to 110°W) allowing continuous observations to follow transient sources. Given the close match in longitude of the MAGIC (17.9°W) and H.E.S.S. (16°E) sites, simultaneous observations at greatly differing zenith angles are also feasible. The measurable energy range can thus be extended beyond what is accessible to individual instruments. The planning and coordination of world-wide observations is challenging and requires close interaction between the different collaborations. The potential of Global Network of Cherenkov Telescopes (GNCT) campaigns for blazar physics and studies of the energy dependent absorption of very high energy (VHE)gamma-rays on the extragalactic background light are discussed. Also, first results from a joint H.E.S.S. and MAGIC observation of Mkn 421 in 2004 are presented.
