2009-11-14 Quick rotary driver for a dome
Since November 2009 we have introduced into our offer a brand new type of rotary drive for ScopeDome 3M domes. Unlike previous one based on frictional gear, new drive employs a cog-rim co-operating with a polyamide cogwheel. New drives will be installed as standard in all domes, replacing the old solution.

2009-07-22 ScopeDome USB Driver ver. 2.1 reads data from weather stations
  We are happy to inform that we work on additional functions of our usb card and driver - weather station support (temperature, pressure, humidity, raining). Everything should be finished in one month. This solution will let check the usb card-computer connection and finding power failures in the observatory. In the case of any power problems, the observatory will be closed and user will be informed about it. We hope that will make remote observations easier.

The new software version ScopeDome USB Driver 2.1 communicates with the most popular weather - sensor Boltwood Cloud Sensor. It supports experimental cloud sensor designed by ScopeDome and reads weather data from the cheaper (but well working) weather stations supported by Heavy Weather software type. Our software is designed to use any meteorological data which can be saved on computer's hard disc.
