Area CCD and sCMOS cameras for solar astronomy

by Dr. Thorsten Pieper, LOT-Quantum Design GmbH
Wednesday 16 Nov, 16:30, in front of Delvaux

This year's event will also include a space weather fair, from Monday to Friday. It gives the opportunity to check the latest space weather products and find out about new activities.
On Wednesday, 16:30 -18:00 , there will be a dedicated fair event with all the standholders being present and ready to explain and discuss with you. The Wednesday fair is followed by a science cafe: space weather juiced with beer and other drinks.
