The Lowdown from Lowell
"When Lowell Observatory decided to build the new public $4M Giovale Open Deck Observatory (GODO) in Flagstaff, AZ, one of the issues we faced with installing a planned suite of six state-of-the–art telescopes from different manufacturers was training 20+ operators on multiple, different control systems.
We decided that we wanted the operator interface for all of the telescopes to be through SkySafari Pro on iPads so that the operators could be trained on a single system and operate all of the different mounts.
We also worked closely with the development team at SkySafari as they provided a number of new capabilities for Lowell & our scopes that didn’t exist in SkySafari at the time. These new functionalities have now been incorporated into a new public release of SkySafari Pro.
Every single night our operators, in a matter of seconds can also look up answers to obscure questions posed by visitors about the object being viewed, share the iPad’s screen view with the visitor, pull up professional images of the targets for the visitors and show the object’s location in the Milky Way using the galactic view.
Visitors love the technology.
The SkySafari Pro interface will allow Lowell Observatory’s public program to interact smoothly and quickly with an estimated 110,000-115,000 visitors in 2020 and as many as 200,000 by the end of the coming decade."
