Wide angle view through the new camera in the dome showing the telescope.

The image is displayed on the TV in the meeting room below.

This installtion was carried out by member Graham Langley who has gained a lot of expertise fitting small wide angle cameras into bird boxes. We also have another camera on a long lead which will reach the telescope eyepiece and can be used to show those downstairs the view through the telescope. This will be very useful for those visitors who are not able to climb the stairs into the dome. The TV control is used to switch between cameras.
