All Sky Camera Model ST-237AS
 
Many observatories use the All Sky Camera to monitor changing sky and weather conditions. This camera uses a fisheye lens to achieve a 180 degree view. This type of camera provides a wide view of the sky which is ideal for seeing meteors, cloud cover, the Milky Way Galaxy, and more. Unfortunately the camera will also record man made objects such as aircraft flying overhead and cars driving along the adjacent highway (they are the lights moving along the edge of the image). The RBO All Sky Camera records images every two seconds from dusk until dawn. These images are auto-uploaded to the web site.
