Abstract: In professional astrophysical observatories is essential to obtain the highest quality in the captured images. One of the factors that most affect this quality, is known as seeing (astronomical visibility), that is nothing more than the distortion that the turbulence of the air introduces into the images of the astronomical objects that are captured by the different instruments. There are several factors that contribute to the degradation of this image quality, some of them have a "natural" origin like atmospheric conditions, the altitude of the facilities, etc., while others have a local origin because they are generated by the observation systems themselves, for instance, telescopes, buildings, domes, etc. Several studies have shown that one of the greatest contributions to degradation of the natural conditions of the seeing is the turbulence that is produced by the differences in temperature between the surfaces of the domes and the air that surrounds them, it is known as seeing of dome. It is intended to determine if it is possible, through the design of a wireless sensor network, to measure this temperature difference and, therefore, to quantify the contribution of seeing's degradation, due to the dome that houses the 80cm telescope (D080) in the Astrophysical Observatory of Javalambre (OAJ). In this way, once this worsening was determined, the appropriate actions could be established to minimize the said contribution.
