|Project Summary||Project Information|
An automated observatory makes it easy to observe the stars from a remote location. As time passes, the position of the stars in the sky changes location to which the telescope and dome will move to accordingly not to obstruct the view of the telescope. Currently, the dome at the RIT observatory moves independently of the telescope and requires periodic manual adjustments.
The goals of this project are to facilitate communication between the dome and the telescope to synchronize their motions with minimal user interaction. It is expected that we incorporate existing software available at the observatory as well as existing motors and only add sensors and microcontrollers where needed to minimize additional wire clutter in the already confined space.
