About this deal

Astronomers have already written nearly 1,000 papers involving ZTF data in just the five years that it's been in operation. Today, the 48-inch is home to ZTF, a robotic camera that, like its predecessors, scans the skies, but at a much faster rate. All these photographic sky surveys have been digitized, which extends their scientific utility for decades, and makes the data freely available to anyone in the world," Djorgovski says.

A Dobsonian telescope is a Newtonian OTA (Optical Tube Assembly, the telescope-proper portion of the full instrument) with a simple altitude-azimuth rocker-box mount (meaning the motion is up/down and left/right, a natural motion for most people). On top of that, the majority of those telescopes still require you know your way around the sky to be able to find key landmarks (usually a number of bright, named stars) to set up the telescope. Palomar is unique in hosting experimental instruments like these that are shaping real-time, or transient, astronomy," Kasliwal says.Professor of Astronomy Mansi Kasliwal (MS '07, PhD '11), who was a graduate student under Kulkarni and has also developed instruments for Palomar, still likes to make her way to the 5,600-foot mountaintop when she can. I'm not familiar with this telescope, but if you only want a telescope, and not a microscope as well, then for the same money you could probably get a better telescope.

Some of the most significant discoveries from the 200-inch telescope involve studies of distant objects.

Stone Professor of Physics, says that the observatory remains a platform for trying risky new ideas both for science observations and creating instruments.After tweaking the mount a bit do-it-yourself style, it was good enough to impress some of my fellow students however.
