How to control and operate your unit.
The guides in the section assume you have a completed PANOPTES and would like to run it under normal operating conditions.
As always, don't forget to check out the forum other tips from users:
This is the normal nightly operating mode for the Project PANOPTES survey and the default mode of operation for PANOPTES units.
Automated operation works by selecting from a predefined list of targets written in a file on the unit. This list of targets can either be a default list provided by the PANOPTES team, or can be any list of targets that you wish!
You can choose to manually operate a unit, either for getting specific images (like the pretty image of the Andromeda Galaxy taken by PAN012 below), for testing mount and camera movements, for following up on specific exoplanet transits, or simply just for fun!
