Technical Description of Night Sky camera.
This purpose made camera now uses a new 48 mm (≈2") Ø Canon
400:1 zoom lens with
an f = 2.8~75mm.
The sensor is now a wide screen 16:9 1100x720 Charge Coupled Device.
Entire unit is usually parked pointing
North at the Pole Star on an adjustable mount
in a purpose built rain dome - O.K. actually an upside down glass food
Unit no longer
on fixed stand - can now track interesting objects!
We hope soon to allow visitors to move the sky camera by remote control.
Right click the picture and then "Save As" if you see anything interesting!
