|The robotic DustCover
protects the primary mirror from dirt and damage; it also supports remote
control of the telescope.
Opening and closing the flaps is
very easy with the Alluna Telescope Control Software by clicking on a button
in Tap "DustCover". The position of the flaps is indicated by different
colours in the software. Depending on the telescope size, the opening and
closing time is only 4 to 8 seconds.
The DustCover has a four-fold design
so the flaps in the open state still offer additional protection against
any stray light.
The robotic dustcover is optionally
available for all our Truss telescopes, RC and astrographs.
