This pocket-sized device is an all-around
Smaller than the size of a cigarette box, and equipped with a variety of
digital sensors, can precisely report the ambient temperature, humidity,
pressure, cloud height, cloud coverage, astronomical daw, twilight time, and
the night sky brightness.
Uranus Meteo Station is housed in high quality, blue
aluminum anodized shell.
every second (configurable time interval) with a network of embedded sensors

A fully digital
operation in combination with a red film display makes the control of the
device quick and simple. A couple of push-buttons on top of the device allows
you to slide from screen to screen and read different sensor metrics.

Sensor has an internal GPS receiver able to report:
GPS Date and Time
to calculate the exact astronomical dawn and twilight time of your place.
“talks” every second (configurable time interval) with a network of embedded
sensors and reports the following information on the display.
- Ambient Temperature (°C or °F)
- Relative Humidity %
- Dew Point (°C or °F)
- Absolute Atmospheric Pressure – Sea Level Pressure
- Relative Atmospheric Pressure (hPa)
- Barometric and GPS (precise) Altitude (m
- Cloud Coverage % (Cloud Index)
- Cloud Temperature
- Cloud Height
of the sky brightness can be achieved if you keep the right button pressed for
more than a second.
- Visual Sky Brightness (MPSAS, NELM and Bortle
highly digital sensitive sensor measures the brightness of the night sky at a
30° angle. You can determine the sky’s brightness within seconds. The device
displays three different scales on-screen (magnitudes per arc second², visual
the sky brightness at different sites or documentation of progressive light

Screen Display Menus
Meteo Sensor displays all sensor readings on different menus that can be
accessed by the two buttons on the top of the handheld device
Imperial or Metric system
display can be configured via the Unity platform software
The device has an
internal memory able to store up to 1000 records. Each record includes all
sensor data and GPS coordinates. The software allows, via USB, to view and
export all of these data to Unity Platform maps, keeping historic records of
Sensor can be used as a handheld device or plugged via a USB2 cable to your PC
or Laptop. The enclosure has 2 x 3mm holes at the bottom to securely lock the
device on your telescope or in your observatory.
GPS port allows
you to output full GPS NMEA messages to a serial device. The pinout is
compatible with 10Micron mounts.
The device has a
NiMH rechargeable (through USB-C port) battery pack.
Sensor fully supports ASCOM 6 Observing Conditions. Metrics can be easily
displayed to imaging software such as SGPro on NINA.
Unity Platform allows monitoring and keeping a record of sensor data from day or night. Zoomable and exportable graphs keep a historic record of every observing session.
