SciTech Applied Research is proud to announce its new line of completely integrated and fully robotic observatory domes: Galaxy Domes
SciTech has designed, from the ground up, a new dome system robust enough to handle the rigors of automation. Furthermore we have designed & integrated the automation system into the dome hardware from the start, not as an afterthought. Finally, we provide “Plug and Play” software that seamlessly integrates into the Software Bisque “AutomaDome” software as well as the ASCOM platform software.
-Plug and Play automation with ASCOM & Bisque.
-Hand paddle operation for manual control of all dome functions.
-360 degree power transfer for shutter open/close in any position.
-Battery Backup allows emergency closure of dome slit.
-Fast opening Shutter; the 10’ dome opens in under 15 seconds.
-High speed rotation; rotates 180 degrees in less than 30 seconds.
-Steel construction for rapid thermal equalization.
-CNC fabrication for precision and speed of delivery.
Complete stand alone Observatories or individual Domes for existing buildings.
Standard Sizes up to 30 feet diameter, custom domes available.
Currently delivering 10 foot diameter domes; perfect for your Paramount, Astrophysics or Mountain Instruments hardware.
