Project MAROC: Robotic and Automatic Measurement of the dark sky


Here is an interesting project using the SQM-LU to scan and collect light readings with a motorized platform.

Submitted by: Fernando Fernandez
Organization: The amateur astronomy association of Spain; "Luz Cero"
Project name: MAROC (Robotic and Automatic Measurement of the dark sky)
We've developed an automated system to perform many lectures scanning near full sky and generating excel file and a graph. Software is Java based and GPL available for download. Hardware is a SQM-LU and a little board to control two step motors.
