Abstract:

A computer based on rotary transformers is presently being developed at the Institute of Electromechanics, USSR, the function of which, in addition to converting the equatorial coordinates to azimuthal coordinates, is to automatically process the position angle of the celestial body. In addition to automatically coordinating the movements of the telescope tube and the dome slit opening, the coordinate conversion systems based on rotary transformers may be used to solve a whole series of other problems. The most important of these are the automatic aiming and driving of telescopes, optical devices, radiotelescope antennas and locational devices with an azimuthal mounting, and the performance of a number of other assignments involving the conversion of spherical coordinates.
