Our sun is a fascinating target even when the solar activity is low - given that the telescope aperture can be increased sufficiently. When equipped with a heated SolarSpectrum H-alpha filter, telescopes from 80mm aperture to 280 mm aperture will show incredibly faint, rapidly changing structures. A SolarSpectrum filter with matching D-ERF-filter and telecentric beam accessories will turn almost every telescope into a highest resolution H-α-telescope. These heated H-alpha filters are manufactured for observatories and ambitious amateurs who want to utilize the aperture and resolution of their existing large telescopes for detailed imaging and monitoring faintest solar features, instead of just taking a quick look at our closest star with a comparably small objective aperture.
SolarSpectrum filters have no central obstruction and the whole H-alpha...

Planewave CDK 20 First Light at College CFG Wuppertal / Germany
Installation of the new 0.5m-Telescope at the Student Laboratory
At the end of September, the company Baader Planetarium GmbH, Mammendorf/Germany delivered the long-awaited large telescope, which allows us a deeper view into the cosmos and to establish new horizons for our project course students in astronomy.
For the many astronomy students at Carl-Fuhlrott-Gymnasium it was as if Christmas and birthday fell to one day. For two years now, we Michael Winkhaus and Bernd Koch have been working to expand the...

Just in time for christmas we have added a few more products to our Online-Shop. Our Highlight of course is still our UFC-System, which is available since about a week and was featured in this Blog-Post.
But we also can offer a "classic product" once more. For a limited time the Carl Zeiss 1¼" Abbe Barlow lense 2x is available again!

It took a little while... but now we also have a modern Online-Shop
NEW: integrated knowledge-database
We have tried hard to create more than a "standard" online-shop. The wealth of information that grew over the years on our old website (detailed product application examples, customer review and practical results on Baader products) was integraded to this website in form of product description or additional product information (WordPress Posts).
A wealth of information awaits you.
NEW: detailed technical data
We added a lot of technical data to our products in the form of attributes. E.g all Baader adapters were measured anew. For all telescope- and eyepiece-sided connections, the adaptation options were defined and stored in form of sortable attributes.
Discover the required accessories for your equipment.
NEW: multiple search options
The left sidebar now allows...

From Dipl.-Ing. Wolfgang Paech – Onjala- and Chamäleon Observatory, Namibia
For this year's longer stay in Namibia we planned to photograph the minor planet (5658) Clausbaader. It had a high altitude in the evening sky, close to Saturn. The series is intended as a small tribute to Mr. Claus Baader, the founder of Baader Planetarium in Mammendorf, who was one of the leading personalities in the field of amateur astronomy and public education in the last century in Germany. Read more under Company History.
The images were captured at the 150mm Zeiss APQ refractor at Onjala Observatory and an "ancient" SBIG ST2000-XM.
After completion of our "Project Pluto" - the experiment to take Pluto with a classic 2 inch telescope - first test images were...
