  • The Atmosphere of Venus - Photographed by our Customers

    Venus as a ring – how can that be? During the last days several customers have sent us some very interesting photos of Venus, which we do not want to withhold from you. They show the planet as a very narrow sickle or even as a ring. This effect can only be seen on Venus by observers on Earth, and it is only visible when Venus is in lower conjunction (www.wikipedia.org/Aspects_of_Venus), i.e. when Venus is...
  • 1st Light with the QHY600 EB: a first field report

    Darkness Became Light! ... A Quantum Leap in 36 x 24mm at 61.1MP? In recent years, color cameras have become increasingly popular. A reversal of the trend is not to be expected. One reason for this is the ability to capture weak structures in deep-sky objects even with moderate exposure times. Developments in CMOS sensors and recently the BSI sensor technology have played a decisive role in this. In addition, both quantum efficiency (QE) and...
  • 4,2m Highspeed Dome for NASA at McDonald Observatory, Texas

    Please note: We wrote the following report of our dome assembly in January of this year months ago, but had to wait for picture release from NASA and the University of Texas, which was delayed for understandable reasons given the current situation. 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...
  • Field test of MaxBright® II Binoviewer by William A. Paolini

    William "Bill" Paolini has been actively involved in optics and amateur astronomy for more than 50 years, and is author of the popular book: : Choosing and Using Astronomical Eyepieces We appreciate the positive feedback we have received so far. The Baader MaxBright® II Binocular with case (#2456460, € 425,-) incorporates the knowledge aquired during thirty years of building astronomical binoviewers. It closes the gap between cheaper entry-level binoviewers and our high-end Mark V Giant...

  • Comparing the IMX455 (Industry-Grade) and KAI-11002 35mm Format Monochrome Sensors

    A technical comparison between the two monochrome 35mm full format sensors CCD Kodak KAI 11002 and Sony CMOS IMX 455 (Industry-Grade) - CCD versus CMOS Why is a monochrome full frame sensor so popular in astrophotography? For many years before electronic imaging became commonplace, the standard method of taking astro-photos by amateurs was to use a 35mm film camera. A single 35mm film frame measures 24mm x 36mm with a diagonal of about 43mm. Early...
  • Adjustment options of the FlipMirror II star diagonal

    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, € 190,09) 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,...
