> High-precision and stable readings;
> Handheld and stationary usage with PC;
> Easy to use software;
> Measures the brightness of the night sky in magnitudes per square arcsecond;
> Infrared blocking filter restricts measurement to visual bandpass;
> Reliable electronic optical unit;
> Voltage step-up converter for stable power supply from deeply discharged  buttery;
> Power-saving features (automatically shutdown after 10 s of inactivity);
> Reverse battery protection;
> Full metal body (black anodized aluminum);
> Mounting on a tripod possible without any additional parts (1/4” threaded hole);
> Based on popular TSL237 sensor.
USING
> Find out how good the night or site really is;
> Compare the sky brightness at different sites;
> Document the evolution of light pollution in your area;
> Monitor sky brightness continuously night-to- night, year-to-year;
> Determine greatest nights for finding the faintest DSO;
> Use the software to collect, analyze and store readings;
> Draw light pollution maps based on the received data;
> Investigate correlations between different astronomical events and sky brightness;
> Take this meter with you on a journey or use as stationary device in the observatory;
> The system is initially calibrated, but the basic constant can be easily changed using   
special software commands.
