Star Micronics/Chugai Boyeki MD 2000 Pan/Tilt/Zoom camera CCTV Dome and Controller
This equipment would make for an excellent weather camera system for your observatory. Or use it to check on your equipment inside. With the proper hardware you could easily access and control your camera through the Internet. The MD2000 is a fully enclosed 20X zoom camera. It is mounted to a fast Pan/Tilt driven by stepper motors. The housing is designed for indoor purposes. However, you could add an enclosure of your own to keep the camera weather tight if you wanted it set up to view the overhead weather conditions.

This equipment is in very close to new condition having never been installed in any facility. The equipment was only used to demonstrate to buyers the merits of the system.
I am looking for an interesting trade. Perhaps, a Losmandy Gemini system, other mid - high end mount - small apo. Email me with you offer and questions. This equipment is still available from Chugai Boyeki a well-known CCTV supplier. The value at the suggested list would be over $2750.00 The trade value has yet to be determined.
