ScopeDome 2M observatory with H120 tower: main features
simple and fast installation of the dome, dome will be delivered to you assembled and tested, its installation does not require more work than a typical installation of the telescope, the dome is ready for operation immediately after unpacking, safe (12V DC) power supply for motors, controll card and heating system, dome motors and control card can be powered directly from a 12V DC car battery, the ability to automatically open the shutter on any azimuth using the built-in power ring rotating mechanism (slip ring), all the shutter rolls and rotating mechanism are hidden inside the dome to protect it from weather, tightness better then in larger domes, design and production in 3D and CNC technology allowed us to minimize the space between the rotating parts of the dome.
ScopeDome 2M observatory with H80 tower: optional accessories
ScopeDome rotation dome motor with encoder for 2M
ScopeDome rotation dome motor for 2M allows remote rotation of the of the 2M dome. For operation, it requires the Arduino Card, it's 12V powered and power consumption is 120W. It includes encoders for dome position reading.
ScopeDome shutter motor for 2M
ScopeDome shutter motor for 2M allows remote control of the opening or closing of the 2M dome shutter. For operation, it requires the Arduino Card, it's 12V powered and power consumption is 150W.
ScopeDome Arduino Card ver. 1.3
This module is designed to control the astronomical observatory and it uses an open source communication protocol. You can control the ScopeDome Arduino Card via Ethernet or USB and it's powered by an external power supply. Two modules can be connected via BlueTooth in Master and Slave modes: the Master module controls the dome's rotation, the Slave module controls the dome's shutter. ScopeDome Arduino Card ver. 1.3 offers also emergency closing of the dome in case of power failure, rain, clouds, and low UPS battery voltage. ScopeDome Arduino Driver comes with an ASCOM driver compatible with ASCOM platform 6.4 to let you control ScopeDome also with the most popular astrophotography softwares.
ScopeDome Plug & Play option for 2M
The Plug & Play option for ScopeDome 2M is designed for motorized versions of the 2 meter diameter (2M) ScopeDome domes. This accessory allows a quick and immediate wiring of all cables and electrical parts: in this way the realization of the entire dome is made much simpler. For this reason we recommend it to anyone who wants to motorize the ScopeDome dome or want to purchase a motorized ScopeDome dome.
ScopeDome Cloud and Rain sensor
The ScopeDome Cloud Sensor is a cloud and rain sensor based on sky temperature measurement, dedicated to work with the ScopeDome Arduino card. It allows for the automatic closing of the dome in case of rain or cloud cover. The built-in sensor heating system prevents false alarms caused by dew.
Do you want to automate and remotely control your ScopeDome and telescope with camera and accessories? Connect the EAGLE to the ScopeDome (via USB or ethernet) and you will be able to control the entire observatory with an handy WiFi connection or with ethernet. Thanks to the EAGLE you will be able to distribute power to all 12V devices on the telescope while dome requires an external power source.
