The purpose of the allsky camera is to perform all sky observations, day or night, and  continuously. There are few sectors we can list that require such capability including:

  • Aerospace
  • Agricultural
  • Astronomical
  • Defense and military
  • Weather sciences

It is possible to assess, in real time, the night sky quality, and to record fast phenomena (meteors and fireballs) or slower (satellites, rockets, noctilucent clouds, zodiacal light, aurora, airglow ….).

This color or monochrome allsky camera can be used to for different applications such as recording:

  • meteors and fireballs
  • satellite passes
  • rockets
  • noctilucent clouds
  • zodiacal light
  • aurora
  • airglow
