Paper Abstract

The control and feedback systems of autonomous meter-classed telescopes is different from one to another, however these systems all have the same purpose. We intended to design a multi-functional and modular electronics that is capable of controlling the mechanics, give feedback of the position of the telescope and/or the dome and communicate with each other and a higher level overseer. We are going to use these electronics in the "Fly’s Eye," the ”Transient Astrophysical Object” project for other telescopes. We will show that our concept is a cheap, reliable, effective way to get a control small-size astronomical observatories.
