Observatory Control 3.0

Observatory Control 3.0
Part#: OCS

This new software and hardware package boasts many features not found in other observatory automation packages. One main feature is to be able to control either remotely or in the observatory itself, our height adjustable telescope pier. You will be able to raise or lower the pier as part of your observing session automation routine. Our controller hosts stored configuration settings and a microprocessor that can automatically open (or close) the observatory at a specific time or signal (e.g.: cloud sensor) – enabling unattended-automated control of your roll off roof observatory without the need of a pc. The cloud sensor can execute an automated routine consisting of pier down, close roof or open roof, pier up, all with feedback from the position limit switches on the roof and pier. This routine can also be activated from popular observatory control packages such as ACP
