The image displayed was taken with a Stellacam EX video camera at f/3.3 with a10" LX200
Above is the last image captured during the latest observing session
of the RD-1 Robotic observatory.
When the observatory is in operation, the image will refresh every 60 seconds
showing the current field
of view from the RD-1 telescope.
The RD-1 will stay on an object for 5 to 10 minutes depending upon conditions
to give guests time to view the images.
The RD-1 is currently undergoing modifications and enhancements
so the viewing sessions may be limited at times.
