    Automation of the spectropolarimetric observations at Kodaikanal tunnel telescope needs placement of the Sun's image on the spectrograph slit and scanning it across the region of interest. This requirement can be achieved ...
  • Yeswanth, L (Indian Institute of Astrophysics, 2013-05-03)
    A rotational shearing interferometer is a modification of the Michelson’s interferometer to obtain the spatial coherence of the light waves. It is mainly used for obtaining diffraction limited images of astronomical ...
  • Saleem, F; Ananth, A. V (Indian Institute of Astrophysics, 2013-04-15)
    This report describes the Interface hardware and the automation control program implemented for the 75cm telescope dome at VBO, Kavalur.
  • Banyal, R. K; Ravindra, B (Indian Institute of Astrophysics, 2012-08-01)
    A Fabry-Perot narrow band imager (NBI) is being built for solar studies at IIA [1]. The NBI has an order sorting pre- lter that selects an optical beam within desired wavelength band. A constant temperature is required ...
  • Vasantharaju, N; Dorjey, N; Ravindra, B; Prabhu, K; Rangarajan, K. E; Prabhu Ramkumar, B; Sankarasubramanian, K (Indian Institute of Astrophysics, 2012)
    G-band observations are important for the study of dynamics of magnetic features in the solar photosphere and they are carried out using large telescopes, larger than 30 cm. We installed a 40 cm DFM telescope at one of ...
  • Kemkar, P. M. M; Saxena, A. K; Nirmal Kumar, P. K; Ismail, R; Sagayanathan, K (Indian Institute of Astrophysics, 2011-12)
    The purpose of this document is to establish the general requirements for handling and coating of the primary and secondary mirror of 2M Himalayan Chandra Telescope (HCT) at the observatory Mirror Coating facility, Hanle. ...
  • Ravi, K; Anbazhagan, P; Ramachandiran, A; Venkateswara Rao, S (Indian Institute of Astrophysics, 2011)
    Conventional Telescope Dome Shutter Control has bi-parting shutter driven by a AC three phase induction motor to which AC power is fed through circumferential busbars. These busbars frequently requires maintenance and some ...
  • Chinnappan, V (Indian Institute of Astrophysics, 2011)
    Computers and communication equipments need uninterrupted quality power for proper functioning. Electrical power is the most essential item for Industries and Institutions. The electricity consumer never worries about the ...
