RTI Dome number 7 – for CSAD in Oxford University
dubbed the “superdome” – as it will contain 128 LEDs and have an improved superstructure.
The plastic dome arrived today:
It is nice and light compared to the previous 1m domes – and was once again made by Talbot Designs. It uses a 30V PSU, similar to other domes. We are using a new very-black paint for the inside from a German company who supplies astronomers! The camera frame has been redesigned to be extremely rigid.
