The ASAS-3 enclosure

In April 2002 the ASAS-2 system has moved to the new automated enclosure in which all four instruments were installed. New enclosure was made at the Warsaw University shops. It's main feature is lightweigth clam-shell which two parts swing to the sides opening the sky to the ~20 deg. above horizon. Shells are driven by off-the-shelf gate-motors. Inside the enclosure there is a stable rack housing computers on its bottom level and telescopes on the upper.
