The CYCLOPE seeing monitor is a science-grade professional system for demanding applications.
The CYCLOPE seeing monitor is a totally sealed weatherproof system that survives even the most servere environments and and adverse weather conditions. CYCLOPE is also not sensitive to strong wind gusts, due to its very rugged design.
WINDOW HEATING AND SENSOR COOLING
The system has four temperature sensors and two humidity sensors to control the proprietary heating system to prevent window fogging. Temperature of the CCD is continuosly monitored, to control seeing-sensor cooling.
The control software automatically starts measurements when the Sun is below the horizon. The system only records when the stars are visible and pauses whenever clouds come up. Operation stops on sun-rise.
The CYCLOPE seeing monitor system offers watertight connectors, for reliable, continuous outdoor operation.
The line-of-sight can be adjusted accurately to point the instrument at Polaris. No additional adjustement is needed.
The micro CYCLOPE system is made of high quality anodized aluminum materials.
The micro CYCLOPE system weighs in at 5.5 kg. Dimensions: 200 mm x 250 mm (base) Height is 400 mm
This system can only work in the northern hemisphere, at latitudes above 15° North, for southern hemisphere please contact us for solutions.
