It is very difficult to find an amateur astronomer who does not dream
about an observatory of his or hers own. When it comes to the point of
its construction, the key question seems to be the choice of an appropriate
roofing which can both shelter an observation space from weather conditions
and provide enough comfort for the persons inside.
Considering those demands, ScopeDome company is proud to present the result
of almost one year study - a fully automated amateur astronomical dome.
From the very beginning more than a dozen professional companies have been involved
in the project, participating in concept studies, operation management, mechanical
and electronic components design - as well as in control software creation process -
a critical part of the dome's automatization.
Production process optimization and careful selection of applied materials results
with an attractive price to quality ratio and puts the dome within the budget range of amateur astronomers.
Our astronomical dome, providing the same advanced solutions applied in the earth's biggest
observatories, can secure any telescope installed as well as astrophotography and measuring
equipment and - on the other hand - may become a source for its owner pride of having a fully
professional technology, ensuring failure-free operation for many years.
We are delighted to put the astronomical dome into your hands, with a hope of satisfying
the needs of any medium-sized observatory. An original form of architecture can be its
admirable showcase as well.
