The OMEA Allsky camera is a higher grade instrument than our entry level ALPEA allsy camera. It is mainly designed for professional institutions needing bleeding-edge hardware and software. Some applications are: aerospace, agricultural, defense, weather sciences
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:
- Defense and military
- Weather sciences
This color or monochrome allsky camera can be used to for different applications such as recording:
- meteors and fireballs
- satellite passes
- noctilucent clouds
- zodiacal light
We have Prepared a webpage with a selection of live Alphea and Omea live feeds: click here
- For advanced scientific applications, we highly recommend the EUDA allsky camera
