Telescope

A very special one off 14" F3.3 Imaging Newtonian with Zerodur mirror figured by well known mirror maker Danny Cardoen, it has a fabulous mirror and will produce stunning detail & FOV with the big ZWO 35mm super sensite CMOS camera!

Peter from 656 Imaging has given it the full treatment including a strip-down, clean and full collimation service. So it really is just ready to rock n Roll!

Pier-10 is a fast Unguided system

The telescope is F/3.3 and is fitted with a low noise CMOS camera set to unity gain, even in narrowband the longest sub length needed is only 300seconds. if you book subs longer than this Roboscopes will contact you to alter them to more suitable lengths that suits the system!

CMOS Camera

ZWO' have finaly released the new generation Sony 60MP 35mm CMOS sensor, its very low noise, great well depth, high dynamic range and very sensitive. It's also one of the new zero amp glow derivatives so thats one less thing to worry about :)

This camera is set to Unity Gain as our default, if you have any special gain and offset requirements for CMOS imaging please discuss and we will do our best to accommodate you.

  • Imaging subjects with brighter cores will of course require shorter sub lengths for HDR, your personal experience will be needed to gauge this yourself.

  • Please remember this is only a guide above, we are just trying to help you have the best experience possible remote imaging with Roboscopes.

  • Roboscopes supply the site and control the equipment but you choose everything else from filters, object/co-ordinates to sub lengths. So you need to exercise due diligence and experience when booking because if you fill the booking form out with incorrect details then you will get precisely that.

  • It is not Roboscopes responsibility to check your detailed requirements after you have booked.

Calibration Files

This pier has a FREE calibration library, this includes a dark library that correlates to the most common subs lengths used, see below

  • 5s Darks

  • 10s Darks

  • 20s Darks

  • 30s Darks

  • 45s Darks

  • 60s Darks

  • 90s Darks

  • 120s Darks

  • 180s Darks

  • 240s Darks

  • 300s Darks

  • Flat Frames - L, R, G, B, Ha, o3, S2

If you choose more individual sub lengths eg 550s, then darks are not included in the price and are taken for you on an individual basis. Please add darks to your imaging run in checkout.
