Paper Abstract

"Pi of the Sky" is a robotic telescope aimed for monitoring of large part of the sky and looking for Gamma Ray Bursts with CCD cameras. One of the main parts of the project are: the mechanism pointing the cameras to given area of a celestial sphere. We present the final design of the new mount with four cameras which is now under tests.
