  • About production delays of Baader Highspeed Filters

    We have received the following question on our Narrowband (and f/2 Highspeed) filters: I understand that narrow-band filters suffer shifts of the passband for light rays that come in at an angle. Is that why they are good to a certain f-ratio and why you offer different filters for fast optics (how do they work? are they actually de-tuned to have the correct passpand at a different average angle?)? I would like to ask whether...
  • First images of comet 46P/Wirtanen with RASA 8

    The Comet 46P/Wirtanen approaches the earth and becomes brighter and brighter. Latest estimates (December 3rd) are about 5m, so theoretically it should be visible with the naked eye. However, its brightness is distributed over a full moon size in the sky, thus the surface brightness is low. To see such a special comet you need a very dark sky. And to be able to photograph it, suitable optics with high light intensity and short focal...

  • TEC 300 VT: unique instrument for sky surveillance

    Palomar Gattini-IR telescope. Copyright: Palomar Gattini-IR team Wtih the TEC-VT 300mm / 7deg Widefield Houghton-Terebizh Telescope (#1351140) , TEC has created a unique instrument for sky surveillance. Thanks to the aperture ratio of f/1.44 and a flat image field of 52mm, large parts of the sky can be photographed very quickly in high resolution. These special features are now used by a project on the famous Mt. Palomar in California, where a TEC VT 300...
