  • SteelDrive II under mac OS and Linux with TheSkyX and INDIGO

  • A stroll through Amateur Astronomy - from the Apollo Space Age to modern 10Micron HiTec Mounts

      If you are older than 50 years and were interested in astronomy as a child, you'll surely remember the time when there wasn't such a broad astronomy market as today, with lots of dealers and manufacturers. This was not only because there was no internet – there were also simply no products. Smaller telescopes were rare, as there were only a few manufacturers. It is no coincidence that the first "mass production" in Japan...
  • Observe now: Jupiter is changing

    For several months now, scientists have been observing that the Great Red Spot (GRS) on Jupiter is changing in an unusual way. On the following photo from 22.2.2019 – taken by the US space probe JUNO which is currently orbiting Jupiter –  you can see that the GRF had already started to change in February and is literally "flowing out". This development is now so advanced that it can easily be spotted by astro-amateurs on Earth....

  • C14 Edge-HD f/11 with 12.000mm focal length - "Mission Impossible" accomplished?

    Theory becomes Reality! Last weekend, on the 17th of February 2019, it seems I achieved my "mission impossible". With my C14 Edge HD f/11 and the Baader FFC 3x (on a 10Micron GM 2000 HPS mount) I was close to 12.000 mm (12 meters!) focal length. Myself and Baader Planetarium optimized my C14 Edge HD to dive into this performance. It looks just like a photo: Is a 4K / 30fps video live and in real...
  • Hurry up to observe Comet C/2018 Y1 Iwamoto!

    One more fine comet for binoculars As soon as comet Wirtanen has gone on distance to Earth, C/2018 Y1 Iwamoto enters the stage. It passes through the constellations of Leo, Cancer and Gemini and is currently visible all night long. The comet Iwamoto is just below the limit of perceptibility with the naked eye, and a small pair of binoculars will easily show it. It is an ideal target for astrophotographers. Unfortunately, the waxing moon...
  • Ready for the Moon?

    50 years ago, all eyes were focused on the Moon: With the Apollo 11 mission on July 20, 1969, humans landed on the Moon for the first time. Since then, numerous unmanned probes have explored the Earth's satellite, and ever larger telescopes are looking into the depths of space. Today, amateur astronomers can use equipment which was half a century ago hardly imaginable even for professional astronomers. While colorful images of distant galaxies are common...
