RO Telescope 3D Model
3D model of a remote operated telescope. The RO telescope can be used for observing the environment/wildlife, aswell as for stargazing. The telescope can rotate 360 degrees horizontally, and 180 degrees vertically. Due to the remote operation, the RO telescope uses a webcam behind the telescope itself. There are 2 versions of telescope; one mounted with a Schmidt-Casegrain telescope (large setup), another with a Keplerian telescope (small setup). The first system would use (only) digital zoom (and would thus also require a better image chip, …), the second uses optical zoom. The chip to be used (definitly for the first system, perhaps the second aswell) would be a digital SLR-chip; the image feed would be transferred via RGB, component, S-Video or HDMI) cable to a television screen (trough a PCB that can also be connected to the internet). The gimball to be used would be controlled by BBAstroDesigns’ servo controller.
