Telescope

Our 200mm Canon L series super fast imaging platform with a full LRGBHOS filter system for not only broandband but now you can do stunning narrowband ultra-widefields also.

Please note: The maximum sub length we will do on this pier is 300s

 

CMOS Camera

ZWO ASI-6200MM Pro Mono 35mm full frame CMOS is one of Sony's new generation zero ampglow sensors. They are super sensitive with very low noise. Making them a paradym shift from the CCD cameras we are all used to using and require much shorter exposures

This camera is set to Gain 100 as our default.

  • 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.
