This 2.3m AllSky dome, which is used for Space Surveilance purposes, gives us an entire satisfaction. A warm thank-you to Baader’s Team for their advises, support and professionalism all along the project.

Note from Baader Planetarium:
The 2.3m AllSky dome for Thales Alenia Space is the second amongst meanwhile three Baader domes at Plateau de Calern. Indeed, another 2.3m AllSky dome was installed in 2022 for the CNRS (Université Côte d'Azur).
Worlds only COTS-Turnkey-Clamshell-dome for space surveillance purposes that is fully operational within an hour after arrival
Shipping a dome is voluminous and commonly it takes several days/weeks for final assembly. This dome is made to fit into a truck, with all mechanics, electronics, autonomous weather sensors, PC-connection, uninterrupted power supply fully assembled. Just twelve anchor bolts need to be drilled into a prepared concrete slab of 200 cm diameter. Hook up your PC and the dome is ready to go 24/7 – for a lifetime.
We do recommend and invite customers to visit us for the final acceptance test (FAT) prior to shipping the dome, so that all dome functions have been checked, all software is discussed and ready to work, w/o skilled technical personal required on site.
