ASTRO-RES Observatory Station with 3m dome - the most advanced remote control platform:

PLL Observatory Stations are remotely controlled with the included EAGLE computer that runs Windows, so you are free to install the Windows software you prefer to control all the devices of the telescope, based on your application. You can remotely control the Observatory Station through a WiFi or Ethernet connection, even through the Internet. And you can easily add also security cameras, weather stations and UPS backup batteries.
More, all PLL Observatory Stations are also already provided with PLAY software specifically designed by PrimaLuceLab to simplify the use of all devices and capture pictures. By using PLAY you can align and point telescope to many targets of the included database, precisely focus camera and rotate it in order to frame your desired object, open or close the telescope motorised cap and dome, set camera acquisition settings and capture sequence of images, capture image calibration files for later post-processing and much more!

ASTRO-RES Observatory Station - 3 meter diameter dome:

ASTRO-RES Observatory Station is provided with 3 meter diameter fully opening dome that, when in use completely, opens and doesn't request for the dome shutter to be synchronized with the telescope position. This way the telescope is able to quickly slew not only to astronomical objects 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. 3 meter diameter fully opening dome includes motors and remote control electronics.

- Maximum outer height: 325 cm (127.95 inches)
- Weight (only dome): 700 kg
- Number of shutters: 4
