Telescope System

These are the Mallincam Cameras I use regularly. These include the Xtreme, the Signature, and the SSIc. Along with cables and adapters. The Xtreme is controlled by Miloslick Software. The Signature is controlled by my own Software. The Signture is able to generate images in SDI quality format.

Ithis is the Primary system I use inside my Observatory. It includes a 12.5” Planewave controlled by the Astro-Physics 1200 GTO mount resting on a tall Pier Tech Tripod. This system is controlled by a variety of computers and is used to send images in real time from the Mallincam cameras through Night Skies Network .
