  • 30 years of Baader-Domes on Mt. Skinakas

    Baader 8m Dome in 2016. © Blinov Dmitri, http://robopol.org/gallery 30 years of Baader-domes on Mt. Skinakas, right next to the mythological birthplace of ZEUS Read the official letter by the Foundation for research and technology Heraklion, Crete September 27, 2016 The Observatory seeing conditions are excellent, with median seeing in two campaigns of 0.7 arcsec. There are two telescopes currently in operation at Skinakas Observatory: a 30 cm Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope (this was the first telescope installed at the Observatory in 1986) and a 1.3 m, modified Ritchey–Chrétien telescope (commissioned in 1997), which is the principal observing facility of the Observatory. Both telescopes are operated on a regular basis for research and educational purposes. There are currently over 190 publications in international refereed journals which present results from Skinakas observations. Baader-Planetarium has constructed domes for both telescopes. The domes have successfully withstood the extreme winter weather conditions on top of Skinakas...

  • Baader 5.3m SLR-dome for Metsähovi Geodetic Research Station, Finland

    Baader 5.3m SLR-dome for Metsähovi Geodetic Research Station National Land Survey of Finland / Finnish Geospatial Research Institute Department of Geodesy and Geodynamics Subject: Customer reference on 5.3-meter fiberglass reinforced polyester observatory dome (up and over shutter -type) Link to the original official Test-Review PDF Backgound: Finnish Geospatial Research Institute (FGI, formerly known as the Finnish Geodetic Institute) of the National Land Survey of Finland is operating a geodetic research station at Metsähovi, Kirkkonummi, Finland (60.2N, 24.4E). Metsähovi is one of a few geodetic core sites worldwide where all major space-geodetic measurement systems, including satellite laser ranging, are co-located. Satellite laser ranging (SLR) is a measurement technique where ultra-short laser pulses are transmitted through a telescope that is tracking a satellite equipped with retroreflecting mirrors and then subsequently received back at a receiver attached to the telescope. With precise measurement of the time of flight of the laser pulse, several important geodetic parameters...
