Did you know?

To determine exactly where Stellina is pointing in the sky, our stations use the astrometric calibration method, also known as “plate-solving” calibration. It consists of comparing the starfield captured by the telescope with an internal database to identify the targeted region of the sky:

1. The observation station targets a random area of the sky.
2. It captures an image of the bright stars.
3. The onboard computer analyzes the resulting image to determine patterns formed by groups of stars. 
4. The patterns are compared with an internal database to find a match and determine the sky target region.

In case of a fail, the observing station starts over with another region of the sky. Most of the time, the second attempt is successful. Clouds or haze in the targeted region of the sky may be responsible for the failure.
