Contact person:
Aldo Giunta

The ASI-16 All Sky Imager is an automatic camera system with a 180° field of view, utilising a 5MP camera and ‘fisheye’ lens with an anti-reflective, airflow protected, quartz dome.
An integrated ventilator and heater system, dual side surge protection, and wide operating temperature, among other features, position the ASI-16 as one of the most reliable all-sky cameras available.

The system can be used for cloud coverage and cloud type analysis, with cloud base height (CBH) and cloud motion functions. It delivers high-resolution HDR images of the sky and clouds as pre-scheduled network stored JPGs and as a live video stream.
