UVscope is an instrument, based on a multi-pixel photon detector, developed to support experimental activities for high-energy astrophysics and cosmic ray research. The instrument, working in single photon counting mode, is designed to directly measure light flux in the wavelengths range 300-650 nm. The instrument can be used in a wide field of applications where the knowledge of the nocturnal environmental luminosity is required. Currently, one UVscope instrument is allocated onto the external…

First detection of the Crab Nebula at TeV energies with a Cherenkov telescope in a dual-mirror Schwarzschild-Couder configuration: the ASTRI-Horn telescope

We report on the first detection of very high-energy gamma-ray emission from the Crab Nebula by a Cherenkov telescope in dual-mirror Schwarzschild-Couder (SC) configuration. This result has been

Night Sky Background measurements by the Pierre Auger Fluorescence Detectors and comparison with simultaneous data from the UVscope instrument

Due to the AC coupling of PMTs in the Pierre Auger Fluorescence Detectors, the slowly varying current induced by the Night Sky Background cannot be directly measured. Estimate of the Night Sky
