Paper Abstract

A robotic system for continuous observation of a night sky is proposed. The "Full Pi of the Sky" system will consist of 32 CCD cameras and 8 motorized parallaactic mounts. The location of a future observation site requires full remote control and autonomous on-line and off-line data analysis. Inorder to test scalability of the sytem and to develop optimal control and analysis algorithms a full, real-time jardware simulation will be employed. The concept of the "Full Pi of the Sky" architecture and some aspects of its software emulation are discussed in this paper.
