  • QHYCCD 268M Monochrome CMOS Astronomical Imaging Camera: Overview and a first light from Bortle 7 skies

    Cooled CMOS imaging cameras for astronomical use have come a long way over the last few years and they are here to stay. The QHY268M PH, BSI Cooled Medium Size APS-C Camera (Photo) (#1931096, € 2775,-) camera has been hotly anticipated and has become a focus for a lot of astrophotographers for its high specifications, build and image quality. The QHY268M is a monochrome cooled CMOS camera that utilises a very sensitive APS-C sized Sony IMX571 sensor. Typical of other QHYCCD camera bodies, the 268M features a matt black cylindrical design with, in this case, a red colored band around the body at the sensor end with QHYCCD’s name and logo and the camera model – QHY268 – clearly labelled. The body is 90mm in...
  • New instruments: Telescopes and mounts for Rodewisch Observatory

    The Rodewisch Observatory in Saxony/Germany has a long history dating back to the beginnings of space travel. The observatory founder Edgar Penzel was the first person outside the former Soviet Union to photograph the first satellite Sputnik 1 in 1957. With a wire ring that he bent around a school globe, he was able to roughly determine the time of the satellite's appearance over Rodewisch and photograph "the Sputnik". The photos sparked great interest at home and abroad at that time, especially of course in the Soviet Union. This was the foundation for decades of visual and photographic satellite tracking as well as astronomical observation of the sky in Rodewisch. After the first German cosmonaut Sigmund Jähn was launched into space in 1978, the Rodewisch...
  • Here comes Venus...

    Its hard to believe that a year has gone by since our Solar System neighbour Venus seemed to be around for ages and riding high in our evening sky during the late winter and spring months. This year, after its superior conjunction on March 25th 2021, Venus will once again start to become part of our evening sky (which makes observation of the planet more "convenient" for many than when it is an early morning object) until towards the end of the year. Unlike last year's evening appearance, for many locations this coming "visit" the planet will not be as high in the sky and having a low and or flat western horizon would be beneficial. However Venus, which is similar in size to our...
  • New Baader CMOS-optimized (Ultra-)Narrowband and Highspeed Filters

    "Finding the way" has a long tradition at Baader Planetarium. The slogan got created by our companies founder Claus Baader – in 1966, when "the Baader Planetarium-Orrery" was announced to the world. And within those many years we always tried to find ways for our technical solutions – and the domes – to stand the test of time. The Baader Planetarium Orrery btw. might have the longest product existence in modern industry – we still produce it here in house – unchanged since 1966 (if you like, check a tiny bit of the print material published at that time). Today we have a similar situation – we worked hard for two years and the "feeling" here is just like way back then. For our new...

  • 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.   New production facility The long delivery times, as well as modern demands for more environmentally friendly production standards have made it imperative to relocate our entire dome production to newly built production halls in order to enable higher capacities and faster workflows. The new production facilities, which are currently being...

  • Using the FlipMirror – The Correct Working Distances

    Instruction Manual: Baader FlipMirror II Star Diagonal Using the Baader FlipMirror II Star Diagonal (BFM II) at the Telescope The Baader FlipMirror II Star Diagonal (#2458055, € 195,-) is not only an accessory for professional users, but much more: It is a helpful tool for every amateur astronomer – especially for astrophotography. First of all, the BFM II is designed to completely replace your standard star diagonal, so that you can keep observing as usual, just like with every good star diagonal. But the BFM II gives you much more options. You can create – from the beginnig, or step-by-step – your own system for photography and keep it always ready-for-use at your telescope. This will save you a lot of time and nerves. In...
  • 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 models, the QHY-600-L is only available with a monochrome sensor. All Mono version of QHY600 PH & QHY600 PRO use IMX455 industry grade sensor (Grade-K) – except the QHY600-L The QHY600-L is a new version of the QHY 600 camera series. It is similar to the QHY600 PH and the QHY600...
