NELIOTA: second scientific publication
The second scientific publication of the NELIOTA project was accepted in Astronomy & Astrophysics on August 31, 2018 and is titled “NELIOTA: The wide-field, high-cadence lunar monitoring system at the prime focus of the Kryoneri telescope". The paper presents the NELIOTA system deployed on the refurbished 1.2 m Kryoneri telescope, the NELIOTA software, instrument performance and results of the first year of NELIOTA observations. NELIOTA is the first astronomical system to use sCMOS detectors at a fast-frame rate. Our observations so far suggest a detection rate of 1.96 × 10−7 events km−2 h−1.
