Slovak-Bavarian collaboration on the development of telescope instrumentation

  • Within the project SLOBATCO (Slovak-Bavarian Telescope Collaboration) the Astronomical Institute of the Slovak Academy of Sciences and Aschaffenburg University of Applied Sciences collaborate in the development and commissioning of scientific instrumentation for the new Ø1.3 m astronomical telescope at the Skalnaté Pleso observatory. The joint project is funded by the Bavarian Academic Center for Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe (BAYHOST). Planned technical work packages are targeting the filter wheel software for the VIS camera, additional IR filters, and an upgrade of the mirror coating facility by additional sputtering equipment.
