section represents the original work with the film based Aurora
Cam. The aluminum framework which was controlled by a microprocessor
based console was programable for a full night of imaging, shooting
an entire roll of film at programmed periodic intervals from
dusk to dawn. The shutter and rewind mechanisms were servo motors,
and all done mechanically. The unit was mounted on the Robotic
for a night of sky photography. Here are some of the results
with this system.
