The AZT-22 telescope installed in Turkey (Antalia) was aligned and tested on stars by the Hartmann method. The rms normal deviation of an equivalent optical system is 0.040 +/- 0.016 mum. The circle of confusion is 0.40 +/- 0.04 arcsec in diameter at a 50% energy level. (C) 2001 MAIK "Nauka/Interperiodica".


Geometric Camera Calibration of BiLSAT Small Satellite Preliminary Results
Friedrich, Jurgen; Leloğlu, Uğur Murat; Tunalı, Erol (null; 2006-02-14)
The interior geometric calibration of the multi-spectral camera of BiLSAT satellite is aimed using three sets of images from Ankara. Each set contains four different images for channels Red, Green, Blue (RGB), and Near Infra Red (NIR) in which well-defined target points were identified and their image coordinates measured. The target points’ UTM coordinates were extracted from aerial photos or topographic maps and collected from field using hand-held GPS receiver. A least square parameter estimation was the...

The Tenth Mediterranean Combustion Symposium, jointly co-sponsored by the Combustion Institute and the International Centre for Heat and Mass Transfer was held in Naples, Italy in September 17–21, 2017. It was built on the success of nine previous meetings held in Antalya, Turkey, in June 1999, in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt, in January 2002, in Marrakech, Morocco, in June 2003, in Lisbon, Portugal, in October 2005, in Monastir, Tunisia, in September 2007, in Corsica, France, in June 2009, in Sardinia, in Septem...
Convergence behaviour - Packing relations of full extraction gate roadways at OAL lignite mine
ISTANBULLUOGLU, YS; Karpuz, Celal (1997-09-01)
This paper describes the results of convergence measurements conducted about five years for the re-use gate roadways at OAL lignite mine in Turkey. Double lignite seams separated with a marn layer, are mined with longwall retreating mining system at the mine. Rib pillar has been abandoned and gate roadways were planned to be packed for the re-use of full extraction. Various packing systems have been attempted, namely three rows of wooden chock, one row of wooden chock plus concrete wall and concrete wall on...
Integrated opto-dynamic modeling of the 4-m DAG telescope image quality performance
Zago, Lorenzo; Guex, Benjamin; YEŞİLYAPRAK, Cahit; Yerli, Sinan Kaan; KESKİN, ONUR (2016-06-28)
The Turkish DAG 4-m telescope is currently through the final design stage. It is to be located on a 3170 m mountain top in Eastern Anatolia. The telescope will be a state-of-the art device, alt-az mount with active primary and adjustable secondary and tertiary mirrors. Its optics design is specially aimed at being compatible with advance adaptive optics instrumentation. The ultimate performance of such a telescope results of multiple concurrent effects from many different components and active functions of ...
Agile development approach for the observatory control software of the DAG 4m telescope
Gucsavd, B. Bulent; Coker, Deniz; YEŞİLYAPRAK, Cahit; KESKİN, ONUR; Zago, Lorenzo; Yerli, Sinan Kaan (2016-06-30)
Observatory Control Software for the upcoming 4m infrared telescope of DAG (Eastern Anatolian Observatory in Turkish) is in the beginning of its lifecycle. After the process of elicitation-validation of the initial requirements, we have been focused on preparation of a rapid conceptual design not only to see the big picture of the system but also to clarify the further development methodology. The existing preliminary designs for both software (including TCS and active optics control system) and hardware sh...
