[No abstract available]
The design of an adaptive optics telescope: the case of DAG
In this paper, we describe in detail the optical design of DAG, a new 4 m telescope for Turkey. DAG is an "adaptive optics friendly" telescope, in a sense that each design decision is taken considering the potential impact ...
A microwave kinetic inductance detector for the DAG telescope
We present the details of a proposed microwave kinetic inductance detector (MKID) for the DAG (Eastern Anatolia Observatory in Turkish) telescope, DAG-MKID. The observatory will have a modern 4m size telescope that is ...
Design of a derotator for the 4 m DAG telescope
(SPIE-Int Soc Optical Engineering, 2016-08-09)
This paper Silt our work on the design of a field derotator for the adaptive optics instruments platform of DAG (Dogu Anadolu Cozier vi), a new 4 in telescope for astronomical observations near the city of krzurum, l'urkey. ...
Integrated opto-dynamic modeling of the 4-m DAG telescope image quality performance
(SPIE-Int Soc Optical Engineering, 2016)
The Turkish DAG 4-m telescope is currently through the final design stage. It is to be located on a 3170 m mountain top in Eastern Anatolia. The telescope will be a state-of-The art device, alt-Az mount with active primary ...
Eastern Anatolia Observatory (DAG): Recent developments and a prospective observing site for robotic telescopes
(Universidad Nacional Autonoma Mexico Instituto Astronomia, 2016)
This document (Eastern Anatolia Observatory (DAG) is the new observatory of Turkey with the optical and near-infrared largest telescope (4 m class) and its robust observing site infrastructure. This national project consists ...
Project management of DAG: Eastern Anatolia Observatory
The four meter DAG (Eastern Anatolia Observatory in Turkish) telescope is not only the largest telescope in Turkey but also the most promising telescope in the northern hemisphere with a large potential to offer scientific ...
Auxiliary free space optical communication project to ensure continuous transfer of data for DAG the 4m telescope
The continuity of the amount of data that the 4m DAG (Eastern Anatolia Observatory in Turkish) telescope will produce and transfer to Ataturk University is critical not to jeopardize the science programs. Though the fiber ...
DAG telescope site studies and infrastructure for possible international co-operations
(SPİE-INT Soc Optical Engineering, 2016)
The selected site for the 4 m DAG (Eastern Anatolian Observatory in Turkish) telescope is at "Karakaya Ridge", at 3170 m altitude (3150 m after summit management). The telescope's optical design is performed by the DAG ...
