Astronomical dome

The dome is made from polyester–glass laminate of up to 6 mm thickness, providing full resistance to weather conditions, and ensuring high durability and aesthetics at the same time. In addition, it is reinforced by special convex profiles on the outside of the mazer and reinforcements placed inside the structure. The dome is made up of 8 basic elements – it strongly facilitates transport and the assembly on the high buildings. 
The tightness of the dome is guaranteed by its special construction which also prevents the leaking of water inside. The large gap at the base and the bright color covering prevent over-heating. Large window of one meter width the edge of sphere allows freely observations using telescopes of up to 120cm diameter. Observation window is designed so that the telescope had clear view of the zenith. Rotation of the dome is provided by a base placed track, it rolls thanks to 16 plastic rollers system. Driving system of the dome is made of two silent low power engines supplied from the 230V. One controls the dome`s rotation, the second allows you to open and close observation window. Special encoder mounted on a circuit of the dome cooperates with the dedicated driver which constantly measures the location of the dome and adjusts the engines` work respectively to the position of the telecope.

Basic Data:

  • Dome diameter: 4000 mm
  • Shutter width: 1170 mm
  • Dome height: 2960 mm
  • Diameter of the base ring: 3500 mm
  • Height of the base: 1100 mm
  • Fully automated driving systems
    for dome rotation and the shutter
  • Dome weight: 400 kg

    Basic data

       Dome dimentions:
    • diameter of the dome: 2000 mm
    • shutter width: 590 mm
    • dome height: 1400 mm
    • diameter of the base: 1940 mm
    • diameter of the outer base ring: 1940 mm
    • diameter of the inner base ring: 1820 mm
    • weight (with pallet): ~ 250 kg

    Height with dedicated tower:
    • tower H80 : 2340 mm
    • tower H120 : 2615 mm

    Additional equipment:
    - small tower H80
    - high tower H120
    - built-in shelf for accessories
    - leveled aluminum base with a hole for the pier.

    The basic version of the dome is designed to be mounted on the observatory`s crown (e.g. on the roof). Base ring has internal and external collar, which must be attached to the crown of the observatory building. For fixing, it is suggested to use Hilti anchors drilling the holes through the laminate. Before attaching the base to the observatory`s crown there is a need to seal all the base ring contact surfaces (joints) with silicone. If you would like to install the dome in the garden on a concrete slab, you should think about ordering it with an additional tower with entrance door. There are two types of different heights: 80 and 120 cm. Each of the towers is standard equipped with front door and one shelf for equipment. You can also order the tower with two or three shelfs for equipment. If you do not want to make a concrete slab under the dome, we recommend a dedicated aluminum base with the floor and special hole for the pier. With big possibilities of height adjustment, it will allow you to setup and level the dome directly on the ground.

    Standard equipment and automation options

    The dome is light enough that you can open, close, and rotate it by hand. We normally does not equip the dome with drive motors for rotation and the shutter. We only install all the necessary components to allow a very simple upgrade to fully automated version in the future. Because of the automation systems, 2M dome can be ordered in several versions:

    a) manual
    b) with the rotary drive
    c) with the shutter drive
    d) with motors without full automation - Semi PlugAndPlay (with built-in heating system for electronics)
    e) fully automatic - PlugAndPlay (motor control using a computer)
    f) heating system of the box with electronic for PlugAndPlay version
    g) dedicated power supply

    Dome automatics

    Dome automatics in PlugAndPlay version consists of following components:

    Rotation control:

    a) ScopeDome USB Card Main Unit
    b) Remote controller
    c) 12V PWM Dome Motor Control Module
    d) ScopeDome USB Card Main Unit has 230V AC sockets on its left side to control the telescope, CCD camera and FAN socket. The sockets can be used to connect any device powered with 230 VAC.

    Shutter control:

    e) ScopeDome USB Card Rotary Unit
    f) 12V PWM Dome Motor Control Module
    g) Hygrometer
    h) Thermometer for the motor temperature measurement
    i) Thermometer for the internal electronics temperature measurement Ordering SemiPlugAndPlay version you will receive only devices marked as a), e), g).
    Upgrade from SemiPlugAndPlay to PlugAndPlay version is possible. In this case there is a need to send back to us complete plates with installed automatics. Wiring system for 2M dome is designed to support such operations.
