  • 3,5 Meter AllSky Dome (180° Öffnung)

    Zwei Jahre hat es von der Planung bis zum ersten Einsatz gedauert, geprägt  und verzögert von Corona-Lockdown und privaten Katastrophen. Fa. Baader hat die Kuppel fristgerecht geliefert, die weitere Bestückung kam von Fa. noctutec aus Eggolsheim. Innen-Einrichtung und technische Anbindung ans Hausnetz etc.: Eigenregie. Die Entscheidung für die All-Sky Kuppel habe ich nicht bereut, unbeschreiblich, wenn sich der ganze Himmel über einem öffnet. Auch für Himmelsführungen mit Besuchern bestens geeignet. Aber in erster Linie für mich,...
  • Baader Standard Domes and Turn-Key Observatories

    After more than 50 years of dome production, we notice a steady increase in requests for details and availability of our observatories. Be it classic Slit-Domes from 2.1 - 8.5 meters or AllSky Domes from 2.3 - 6.5 meters, but above all turnkey observatory solutions. The demand for these constructions – mostly with requirements for extreme climatic conditions – has increased so much that we currently still have to name far too long delivery times....
  • staernwarte Gersbach

    Freunde des Unternehmers Elon Musk hatten sich den 27.5.2020 schon lange in ihrem Kalender angekreuzt. Erstmalig sollten an diesem Tag NASA-Astronauten mit dem kommerziellen Unternehmen SpaceX zur ISS fliegen. Auch bei uns war der Tag lange herbeigesehnt. Unser Ziel: die Förderung der praktischen Astronomie bei Kindern und Jugendlichen! Als Partner für unsere Mission hatten wir - das Schülerforschungszentrum phaenovum in Lörrach- dazu die Firma Baader-Planetarium gewählt; und um es vorwegzunehmen: einen besseren und angenehmeren Partner...

  • NASA (McDonald Observatory)

    Located in the Texas Davis Mountains on Mount Locke at 2,100m is the famous McDonald-Observatory. The University of Texas owns and finances the site. Due to the current construction of SLR stations at NASA for Space Geodesy Satellite Laser Ranging (SGSLR), a 4.2m high-speed dome from Baader Planetarium was installed here in January 2020. This is the second system of its type after the 4.2m Highspeed-Dome at the Goddard Space Flight Center, which was installed in April...
  • 3,5 Meter AllSky Dome (180° Öffnung)

    For this somewhat different dome installation in front of a dreamy, picturesque landscape, we wrote our own report on the exciting installation, which was marked by a few mishaps: Modern meets Antique: 3,5M AllSky-Dome in a greek mountain village After our customer has used the dome (which was installed in mid-December 2019) for some time, we will hopefully be able to add a customer experience report at this point.
  • The new QHY600-L CMOSCamera

    We are glad that QHY has decided to offer the extremely promising IMX 455 SONY sensor in the consumer version after all, as all competitors do (but hiding the chip grade). So our customers now have more choice between 4 models of the QHY 600. By using the IMX 455 in the new QHY600 L with a sensor of the consumer series, the price of the camera is reduced considerably. Compared to the other 3...
  • 3,2 Meter Classic Dome (Spaltkuppel)

    Der lange Weg zur perfekten Sternwarte... Als ich mir 1997 den Traum vom eigenen Haus erfüllen konnte, habe ich eine Kuppel mit in den Plan genommen. Wegen eines schweren Unfalls 1987 musste alles rollstuhlgerecht geplant werden. Leider habe ich mich damals aus Kostengründen für einen anderen Kuppelhersteller entschieden. Das C14 und meinen 130mm Astro Physics mit Montierung hatte ich bei Baader Planetarium erstanden. Die erste 3,5m Kuppel bereitete mir immer wieder Probleme. Die Kuppel war...
