Preparation of an observation night in time lapse

In our school lab, it is possible to make nocturnal observations of the sky without extensive effort. The telescopes are already completely installed on their mountings under their weather protection cubes and are waiting to be used. In a time-lapse, Simon Gier depicts the preparation of two of our three stations in parallel by a single person. The cubes are moved aside and the equipment for the night is brought out (computers, cameras, eyepieces etc.). In a short time, observers are able to take their first images. The night was sufficiently warm to allow observations to be made directly at the telescopes. In cold weather, the cubes can be used as heated control rooms.
