micro CYCLOPE seeing monitor

 

 

 

 

 

The micro CYCLOPE fixed seeing monitor is a totally sealed weatherproof system, that survives even the worst weather conditions. Micro CYCLOPE is not sensitive to excessive wind gusts due to its rugged design.

 

AUTONOMOUS OPERATION

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.

 

RUGGED DESIGN

This micro CYCLOPE system offers watertight connectors, for reliable, prolonged outdoor operation.

 

The line-of-sight position can be adjusted accurately, to point the instrument at Polaris.  No more adjustement is required.

 

The micro CYCLOPE system is made of high quality anodized aluminum materials.

 

 

 

Advantages:

  • excellent measurement accuracy because of a high resolution sensor with smaller pixels
  • ethernet link to the host,
  • no cable length limit
  • PoE power supply
  • ability to measure at very low seeing figures, whereas other systems are no longer reliable under 1.5 arcsec seeing.
  • strong and robust construction: rock-steady measurements not influenced by wind gusts

 

The micro CYCLOPE system weighs in at 4.8 kg. Dimensions: 200 mm x 150 mm (base) Height is 260 mm

 

PLEASE NOTE:

This system can only work in the northern hemisphere, at latitudes above 15° North, for southern hemisphere please contact us for solutions.
