Webinar: sCMOS Observations at SwissOGS
Abstract: First, we will describe the integration of the sCMOS camera in the SLR system as tracking camera. Then we will show how, by using the camera, we could improve the performances of the SLR system. The tracking camera in fact allows us to correct in real time the pointing of the telescope, thus helping us to overcome the limit given by the small field of view of the SLR system by shortening the target acquisition time. The correction of the telescope pointing allows us to measure, via SLR, the distance to the observed objects.
