ScopeDome Clamshell 3M observatory


ScopeDome Clamshell 3M observatory is the perfect dome for tracking satellites, space debris or quick sky surveys, because when in use it completely opens and doesn't request for the dome shutter to be synchronized with the telescope position. This way the telescope is able to move very fast tracking not only astronomical object but also satellites or space debris. The fast shutter drive allows almost immediate observation and a special feature of the dome is the ability to open only selected shutter, which allows additional protection of the telescope against strong winds. ScopeDome Clamshell 3M observatory includes motors and Arduino Card 1.3. Note: no Free Shipping with UPS Standard option available for this product. Shipping cost to be quoted separately.
