Example of ASTRO-RES Observatory Station with ScopeDome 3M v3 dome fully automated for remote control.
ASTRO-RES optical Observatory Station - ScopeDome 3M v3 dome:
The ScopeDome 3M v3 is the newest version of the time-proven ScopeDome 3M observatory dome. With its highly competitive pricing it is definitely the best selling 3M observatory dome worldwide. You can order the dome starting from the manual version up to fully automated versions that leave nothing to wish for. The ScopeDome 3M observation dome is running so smoothly that it can be rotated using a single finger. The shutter can also be operated by hand.
ScopeDome 3M v3 dome: provided accessories
ScopeDome rotation dome motor for 3M
ScopeDome rotation dome motor for 3M allows remote rotation of the of the 3M dome. For operation, it requires the Arduino Card.
ScopeDome shutter motor for 3M
ScopeDome shutter motor for 3M allows remote control of the opening or closing of the 3M dome shutter. For operation, it requires the Arduino Card.
ScopeDome Arduino Card PlugAndPlay
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. ScopeDome Arduino Card 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 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.
ScopeDome door option for 3M
ScopeDome optional door for 3M.
In order 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.
All ScopeDome are "first-time" assembled and tested in ScopeDome factory and then dismantled and carefully prepared for worldwide shipment.
ScopeDome 3M v3 observatory: dimensions
Diameter of the dome: 3000 mm Shutter width: 1000 mm Dome height: 2400 mm Diameter of the base: 2760 mm Dimensions of the shipment pallet (LxWxH): 2.8x2.2x2.35m - weight ~ 350 kg
Need help in observatory design and construction?
Thanks to our deep understanding of all the technical specifications and the functions needed for a complete observatory to be really operational, we offer a special service for people (both amateurs and institutions) that want a complete observatory for their hobby, didactic use or work. Thanks to the fact that PrimaLuceLab not only sell all the parts needed for a complete observatory but also design and develops new solutions, our technical team can design and personalize all the instruments (telescope, pier, observatory and control computer) needed to give you a complete system matching your requests. If you're interested, please contact us.
ESATTO 4" is the large dimensions robotic focuser that we designed for observatory class telescopes or for astrographs that need for large free aperture, like the Takahashi FSQ-106. Compared to the smaller models, ESATTO 4" offers a larger free aperture of 102.2mm, a longer draw tube travel of 35mm and a higher payload capacity of 10 kg, always with the...
ARCO 3" is the larger version of our ARC second resolution rOtator that, thanks to its incredible resolution of 1 arc second per step, is the most precise camera rotator and field de-rotator! The 3” version of ARCO has a thickness of only 23mm and a free aperture of 76.3mm. When used together with an equatorially mounted telescope, ARCO allows you to...
PLAY is the astrophotography software developed by PrimaLuceLab in order to record beautiful pictures of the night sky in the simpler way and with the telescope you prefer! PLAY includes many features needed for astrophotography like focuser control to perfectly focus you image, mount control for alignment and pointing of many objects, capture of...
If you order one of our Observatory Stations, our turn-key solutions for astronomy research or space exploration composed by telescope and dome, we can design a custom version of GIOTTO smart flat field generator in order to match type and diameter of telescope you want to use. And we can also apply our ALTO telescope cover motor in order to let you use...
