The Smart Panoramic Optical Sensor Head (SPOSH) camera imaging the night sky between 12 and 13 August 2007 (when the Perseid metor shower reached its peak), at the Kanzelhöhe Observatory in Austria.
The (SPOSH) camera, a highly sensitive instrument whose performance was tested during the Perseid observation campaign, is built for future use as a night-side imager of planets. It could also be used to observe meteors from space.
SPOSH was developed by Jena-Optronics and DLR under ESA contract.
