I operate 2 optical geophysical observatories in northern Norway, one at Ramfjord (shown here at the EISCAT radar site) since 2001, and one at Skibotn since 1996.
 

FAGAL: Portable 100 frame-per-second imager (2008), shown deployed in Alaska with mirror lens.
 

EMCCD: Portable Andor DU-888 (2008), shown on campaign in Norway.
 

SDI: Scanning Doppler Imager in collaboration with LaTrobe University in Australia and the Geophysical Institute in Alaska (2007), currently operating at Mawson in Antarctica but moving to south pole.
 


CAMS: Corrected All-sky Mirror System for distortion-free fish-eye night-vision imaging (2005), prototype shown.
 


DASI-2: Multi-wavelength night-vision imager (2006), permanently located at the EISCAT radar facility in Norway.

SPARKLE: High-gain multi-wavelength night-vision photometer system(2004), shown with 1-metre diameter Fresnel lens at EISCAT (Norway) and deployed at Sura (Russia).
 

 


ST9: Portable CCD night-vision imager (2004) deployed at HIPAS (Alaska) and SURA (Russia).
 

 


SCASI: Slow-scan CCD All-Sky night-vision Imager (1997-2007) was permanently located at Skibotn (Norway).
 


FPI: Fabry-Perot optical Interferometer (1996-2004) was permanently located at Skibotn (Norway).

MOSIAC: The Mesospheric Ozone System for Atmospheric Investigations in the Classroom (2012) is a satellite TV receiver that has been converted to observe mesospheric ozone in the height range 50-100 km. This project is a collaboration with Haystack Observatory MIT in the USA.


ECLIPSE: The solar tracker (2001) is a satellite TV receiver (11 GHz) to record solar emissions during eclipses, shown here on campaign in Lusaka, Zambia.
