Russian Students of School No.29 have developed the UmKa-1 satellite
with a telescope on board. The device is assembled on the basis of
the OrbiCraft-Pro platform. The payload was handled by the pupils of
the school center for scientific creativity. The educational institution
also has its own astronomical complex with a planetarium and an observatory.
The elements of the payload are the high-power telescope "Leptonar-20955K"
and the astronomical digital camera playerOne Saturn-C SQR. Before placing
them in the satellite body, the project participants took pictures of the
constellation Cygnus, as well as the Andromeda nebula from Earth.
