The observatory allsky camera is based on a ZWO ASI 178 MC camera & Fujinon HF1.8HB-L1 fisheye lens.
The picture is updated every 5 minutes.

Below the cloudwatcher weather data to obtain safe status for robotic operation of the observatory.


The allsky camera is operated by AllskEye, a program to capture images. It also can detect meteors, like this Perseid.

Early 2017, during a trip to Northern Norway, I took the allsky camera out on one of the evenings to spot Aurora Borealis. At peak activity that night, it shows a dramatic view of the Northern Lights at the sky above us.

This is a timelapse of 5 seconds of exposure for each frame. The video is slowed down at 50%. At 25 frames per second and a duration of 33 seconds, this spans about 35 minutes.
The camera was positioned on top of a small hill but you can still see the lights of cars passing by on the road below.
