- ScopeDome 2M dome manual version
- Rotary drive
- Shutter drive
- 2x 12V PWM motor controller
- 12V/15A DC power supply
- Semi PlugAndPlay cabling for manually controlling dome motors
The dome is delivered assembled, ready for installation on a previously prepared concrete base or roof.
You can add 120 or 80 cm towers (walls) and a dedicated leveled, aluminum base to the dome. One storage space for equipment is included in the price of the tower, if you want to order two storage spaces, select the appropriate option.
Thanks to the modular design, the dome is adapted to be expanded in the future with the option of drives and automation systems. This gives you the opportunity to order the cheapest manual first and, as your observatory develops, add more automation components.
The main advantages of 2M motorized dome:
- simple and fast installation of the dome,
dome will be delivered to you assembled and tested, its installation does not require more work than a typical installation of the telescope,
- the dome is ready for operation immediately after unpacking,
- safe (12V DC) power supply for motors, control card
and heating system,
- dome motors and control card can be powered directly from a 12V DC car battery,
- the ability to automatically open the shutter on any azimuth using the built-in power ring rotating mechanism (slip ring),
- all the shutter rolls and rotating mechanism are hidden inside the dome to protect it from weather,
- tightness better then in larger domes, design and production in 3D and CNC technology allowed us to minimize the space between the rotating parts of the dome.
