Majority of our posts present beautiful images of astronomical
object. Naturally we want to show the breathtaking views of deep space
wonders (honestly, we often stay in awe when we see what can be
captured with our cameras and we are proud the best
astro-photographers around the world chose them).
CCD cameras caused revolution not only in aesthetical
imaging, but even more importantly in astronomical research. And
Moravian Instruments cameras are also behind important scientific
data, which help us to understand laws of our Universe.
Here we present the latest version of BART (acronym for Burst Alert
Robotic Telescope), the telescope primarily intended to capture
gamma-ray burst optical afterglows. As the gamma-ray burst position is
often known with very low precision only, the maximum field of view is
very important. The very large sensor (37×37 mm) of the G4 cameras is
the key to success here.
