Quick Overview

ScopeDome 5.5M observatory 5.5 meter diameter dome is made from 6mm glass polyester laminate (GFK), which guarantees complete protection against all environmental influences, simultaneously providing a high level of stability and guaranteed longevity. A proprietary special reinforcement rib system on the inside of shell construction, provides additional rigidness. The water tightness of the dome is warranted by a special design of joints and surfaces, that prevent ingress of water or snow in the dome.

A large, "dome-around" air gap in the base ring prevents excessive daytime heating of the interior and easy temperature equalization during nighttime observing, as soon as the dome is opened. The large observing window, with a width of 1,7m, allows unhindered observing for telescopes with diameters of up to 50" with Alt-Az mount and 30" with equatorial mounts. The observing window has been designed in such a way, that an unobstructed view of the zenith is possible. The dome comes complete with all all necessary motor hardware for dome rotation and shutter window. All control electronics is house in patented watertight cabinets.

The optional ScopeDome electronics are 100% ASCOM compliant and feature standard dome/telescope sync, power management, sensor suite, proprietary software. A wide range of weather stations can be interfaced with the dome's control system, to trigger dome safe-mode events. The ScopeDome TCS/OCS system supports remote and robotic operation, worldwide, either cable, or satellite based.

ATTENTION: Due to its weight, dimensions, special requirements and for safety reasons, this dome can only be ordered with our Installation Service. The 5.5M dome cannot be constructed safely by the customer. Our experienced team is necessary for the proper and safe construction of this dome. Both the 4M and 5.5M domes can not be flush mounted and either need a special concrete ring foundation, or ScopeDome proprietary steel support structure ring system. After the order, we'll give all tech info and a support ring design so your local building contrator can pour the foundation.

Do you want to automate and remotely control your ScopeDome? By adding the EAGLE not only you will remotely control your telescope but also the ScopeDome that you will be able to open or close to use your instrument and that will automatically rotate by following your telescope position!
