  • Baader Standard Domes and Turn-Key Observatories

    After more than 50 years of dome production, we notice a steady increase in requests for details and availability of our observatories. Be it classic Slit-Domes from 2.1 - 8.5 meters or AllSky Domes from 2.3 - 6.5 meters, but above all turnkey observatory solutions. The demand for these constructions – mostly with requirements for extreme climatic conditions – has increased so much that we currently still have to name far too long delivery times....

  • The new QHY600-L CMOSCamera

    We are glad that QHY has decided to offer the extremely promising IMX 455 SONY sensor in the consumer version after all, as all competitors do (but hiding the chip grade). So our customers now have more choice between 4 models of the QHY 600. By using the IMX 455 in the new QHY600 L with a sensor of the consumer series, the price of the camera is reduced considerably. Compared to the other 3...
  • NEW: GM2000 HPS II COMBI Mount

      The new  GM 2000 HPS II COMBI combines the solid stability of the GM2000 HPS II Monolith with the portability of the GM 2000 HPS II Ultraport. These two mounts are no longer produced and will be replaced by this successor model. This mount is basically a GM2000 HPS II Ultraport (“splittable” in two parts) with an additional lockingsystem; next to the quick locking system,which is very useful to carry and assemble the mount in...
  • The telescope equipment for the Mars Opposition

    Tips for the visual observation of the Mars opposition 2020 The observations of the Mars channels in the 19th century were made with telescope apertures of 30 to 50 centimeters. Telescopes with similarly large apertures (like the Celestron C14, or the PlaneWave CDK 12.5- and 20 inch) are now well within the reach of amateur astronomers. Perhaps you will succeed in spotting the large Canyon Valles Marineris? To help you succeed in the hunt for...
  • Comet Neowise in a different way

    Comet NEOWISE is probably the most beautiful comet since 25 years on the northern hemisphere of the earth. Comets are messengers from the time of origin of the solar system, frozen remnants of the primeval cloud from which the planets were formed. When they come to us from the cold depths of the outer solar system and thaw when they approach the sun, they spread gas and dust and create a unique celestial phenomenon. Most...

  • Mars Opposition 2020 –The Return of the Red Planet

    Do you still remember the lunar eclipse two years ago? At that time the moon was not the only orange-reddish celestial object. Nearby – next to Jupiter – there was Mars in the sky, too. For many people, this was the first time they saw the two planets knowingly "live" – thanks to the attention that the lunar eclipse generated. Unfortunately, the Moon will not give us such a show again this year, but Mars...
