AllSky horizon-to-horizon camera

Last month I wrote an article for about the Santa Barbara Instrument Group’s AllSky horizon-to-horizon camera. The AllSky’s main gig is extended, unattended sky watching. Point it up, switch it on, and you’re good to go.


The AllSky is meant for tracking clouds, meteors, UFOs, and whatnot. It features a high-gain CCD sensor in a weatherproof housing, complete with a heater to prevent the build up of condensation.
