  • MoFi 2018: NEODYMIUM - Moon & Skyglow-Filter

    NEODYMIUM Moon & Skyglow-Filter 1¼": #2458305A 2": #2458334A The most important filter for the planetary season – better contrast for Mars, Moon and Jupiter. Planeoptically polished and MC-coated – with IR-cut coatings! Drastic contrast enhancement for all telescopes, without loss of image brightness! This filter is initially based on a development by Carl Zeiss. The effect of the element neodymium as filter material is very impressive. If used as co-mixture to optical glass, it improves the contrast and enhances the red portions of the image (especially for Mars and Jupiter). At night it blocks that part of the spectrum, which suffers most from street lighting – and it blocks the light pollution, also known as „skyglow“. And lastly, the applied UV/IR blocking coating (Luminance-coating - check the spectral trace) cuts all unwanted UV below 400 nm and NIR above 700 nm - this makes it the „sharpest contrast enhancing filter“...
  • NEW: AZ 2000 / 4000 HPS Mounts with Double Telescope Option from 10Micron

    AZ4000 DT The Italian manufacturer 10Micron is expanding its range of high-precision mounts to include azimuthal models. Initially based on the GM2000 HPS and the GM4000 HPS the AZ 2000 HPS and the AZ 4000 HPS will be presented at the ATT in Essen. In the standard configuration, these mounts are designed for one telescope and require counterweights; with the DT (double telescope) option, the mounts can also be operated with two telescopes. The two sides do not have to be perfectly balanced: AZ 2000 carries a payload of 50 + 35 kg, AZ 4000 HPS 100 + 150 kg! Thanks to the azimuthal configuration, compact observatory buildings can be used more efficiently and, above all, the tiresome meridian flip is eliminated. This allows objects to be observed all night long. The mounts provide a stable basis for scientific applications such as satellite tracking, photo- and astrometry, lidar laser applications...
  • ISS Solar Transit with AstroSolar Photo Film

    AstroSolar® Photo Film OD 3.8 On April 14th, Philipp Salzgeber was able to catch the ISS while passing in front of the sun. For this, he used a filter made from AstroSolar® Photo Film OD 3.8 (#2459278) He kindly gave us the permission to repost his blog post from http://www.salzgeber.at/astrophotography/solar/iss-solar-transit. As the ISS orbits our planet, from time to time it passes in front of the sun for a given location. https://www.calsky.com and https://transit-finder.com/ allow you to predict such transits for your location. A combination of all frames that captured the ISS. On Saturday, April 14th 2018, such a transit happened, and I was able to capture it: (Of course the sound is artificial!) I used a 127mm refractor with a 2x teleconverter, shooting FullHD Video in DX crop mode on a Nikon D750.[br] Here are some images taken from the video, and a combination of all frames that captured...

  • Detailed Customer Review on CDK 17" PlaneWave Astrograph

    Dear Mr. Baader, I am happy to comply with your request and share with you my criteria that led to the purchase of the 17 inch telescope from  Planewave, and following my experience with this telescope. Since this was a rather complex topic, please forgive the long text and its extent , which certainly clearly exceeds a "normal" customer judgment. Download: detailed review on CDK 17" PlaneWave Astrograph (pdf-file) Decision criterions for the choice of the Planewave astrograph were primarily: "First Light" at full focal length of the PlaneWave. Exposure 40x30 seconds (without any guiding) was added, taken with a modified Canon EOS 40 DA. robust mechanical construction of the whole telescope, fixed installation and collimation of primary mirror and field corrector at factory, stable secondary mirrorcell, easy adjustment of the secondary mirror, easy control of distance between the main and secondary mirror withRonchi test, good focus stability with slight...
  • Alt 7 Mount with AVALON StarGo Retrofit GoTo System

    Mr. Dal Sasso from Avalon Instruments and Mr. Quarra from Unitron The mounts by ALT are solid "workhorses", some of them are in use on observatories for decades. To modernise them - and to see if it is possible - we asked AVALON Instruments to adapt their up-to-date StarGo control to an ALT-7. The first results are promising. The Avalon control system is now working fine with the ALT mechanics, and the telescope can move much faster than before. But it wasn't easy: The stepper motors had to be replaced, the housing had to be modified and a gear box had to be designed to transmit the necessary force. So far and in the lab, everything works fine. We still have to make the final tests under the stars! We will let you know when there are news. Full video showing a 180 ° slewing of the mount with the...

  • NEW: M-Uno Dual Single Fork Equatorial Mount from Avalon Instruments

    AVALON M-Uno Dual Coming with the same RA mechanics and Fast Reverse, Belt driven System, is an upgraded version of the well known M-Uno mount. The innovation on the M-Uno Dual mount is the new fully rotating Declination axis, which allows the use a second clamp (optional) to hold a second smaller OTA or X-Guider (optional). Either a standard or adjustable version of the GP & Losm. 3” clamps can be easily attached to the declination axis. Both the adjustable clamps are provided with inox screws to align a second scope (of smaller size compared to the main one used) in order to have both perfectly aligned to the same object or field of view. As an alternative, also the X-Guider accessory can be attached directly to the declination axis end as it provides a fine alignment of the guide scope itself. The use of a second scope on the...
