Monitors at PRE Instruments on PRE platform after snowfall

  • Real Speed Camera (Auroral TV Camera). (pointed to field-line): recorded to VHS tapes.
  • Meridian Scanning photometer with zenith photometers. NEMI: scans from 70° to 160°, FPI: scans from 35° to 100°, integration time 0.2s.
  • SBIG Digital Camera with Hanimex 35mm/F2.8 lens. F4 used.

University of Tromsø operates:

  • ODIN Camera: FOV 18x12°, videorate recorded to DV tapes.

Kilpisjärvi

Optical instrumentation at Kilpisjärvi site station forms from the instruments of Space Physics Group of University of Oulu. Monitors from left to right:

  • Meridian Scanning photometer with zenith photometers: scans from 70° to 160°, integration time 0.2s.
  • Real Speed Camera (Auroral TV Camera): recorded to VHS tapes, FOV: atz. 315°, alt. 20-50°
  • AP-7 Digital Camera
  • Spectrometer:Data sample. Sample taken with 2s exposur. CCD Imager (SBIG ST-L 1301) captures slice from the sky using a slit, mirror and diffraction grating to produce spectrum presented. Spectrometer operates with 1s exposure every five seconds.
Also All Sky Imager of Finnish Meteorological Institute locates at the same station.

Karesuvanto

  • Meridian Scanning photometer with zenith photometers: scans from 90° to 150°, integration time 0.2s.
  • AP-7 Digital Camera
