For more than 20 years, the atmosphere above the Telescopio Nazionale Galileo and its surroundings at the Roque de Los Muchachos Observatory have been monitored. From the first instruments installed in the early ‘90s to characterize and show the quality of the sky at the chosen site (particularly the Automatic Weather Station and the DIMM) we evolved into the actual set up of remote sensing devices. They are as a fundamental aid for the telescope, in particular for its safety and the optimization of the scientific throughput. We will resume here the lessons learned, some results and the new choices for monitoring the atmosphere at the TNG.
