How do I make a request of the plough

Postby Adamseidel231 » Fri Feb 27, 2015 9:55 am

Hi,

Anyone know how I can enter a request for a image of the plough I've looked through all constellation options and none have the plough

Tnx Adam

The plough is more commonly known by astronomers as Ursa Major.

You should be aware however that our constellation camera is currently offline awaiting repair, so you will not be able to order wide angle images of constellations at the moment.

I hope that helps.

The paper work for a servicing trip is being shuffled around the university. With luck before the end of the month. It might come back with a slightly smaller field of view though as we're replacing the camera with a backup.
