  • Celestron CGX mount in combination with StarAid Revolution as guiding cam

    The CGX: A Versatile Mount For Everyone! Recently I was able to work with the Celestron CGX, the Baader Apo 95/560 Travel Companion, the Nikon D810A and the StarAid Revolution as guiding system for the first time. Once again the results proved how much you can get out of a good system if you take some time to tweak the settings a little bit instead of simply working with the factory settings of the software without taking...
  • Using the FlipMirror – The Correct Working Distances

    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,...
  • WHY are the QHY600 CMOS cameras more expensive than models from other manufacturers

    WHY are the QHY600 monochrome CMOS cameras more expensive than models from other manufacturers that also use the Sony IMX 455 BSI CMOS sensor? The image sensor - the heart of EVERY astronomical CMOS camera Image sensors are THE basis of ALL imaging in astronomical photography. The performance of the camera - i.e. the read out raw image after exposure - is based on the quality of the CMOS or CCD sensor and its performance....
  • The disc of Mercury near the upper conjunction, captured with the Baader APO Travel-Companion 95/580

    Our customer Jörg Schoppmeyer sent us this unusual picture: a circular Mercury, shortly after the upper conjunction and only 1.8° away from the Sun!     Mercury is traditionally a difficult object to observe. The reason: The small planet is always close to the Sun and can be seen with the naked eye only shortly after sunset or before sunrise when it is at maximum distance from the Sun. Legend has it that even the...
  • Baader Custom Developments for telescope installations

    We received a question from our customer about our turn-key telescope solutions. It was actually only a short question, but we answer it in detail to show you what kind of benefit it provides, when ordering a complete telescope system from us. The question: Could you tell me what the OTA rings on the TEC140 in the attached image (from a Baader installation) are. I can see that the outer rings are the Baader heavy...
  • Spikes with Astro-Amici Prisms

    Ich sehe an hellen Objekten Spikes – ist mein Prisma defekt? Concerning Amici prisms, there are two factors which can limit the use for astronomy. The first one is the optical quality, i.e. how good is the alignment of the optical surfaces. Most Amicis are made for terrestrial use, where our atmosphere limits the useable magnification to ca. 60x or 70x, anyway. So, it's fine if they don't show a double image up to ca....
  • 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...
