Baader UFC (Universal Filter Changer)

UFC filter for RASA telescope
Review by Lightcatcher
- 13/9/2018

Customer Images

As I have QHY168C One Shoot Color camera and I wanted to connect it to Celestron RASA scope, I found the best solution by using UFC system from Baader. As many manufacturers on the market, nearly the same amount of different systems available and different focus distances, so to simplify my adapter set I've ordered only necessary minimum. I've asked in local astronomy shop to just shorten the longest extension so I can achieve the focus distance. After that, everything was fitting perfectly.

FeatherTouch Micro Focuser for Celestron HD8" / CPC800 / NexStar 6 - 8 / C8

Nice addition and first step towards focus automation
Review by MGR
- 11/9/2018

A very nice addition, sturdy and nicely crafted, for my edgeHD 8" SCT astrophotography setup. Very nice build and performs great out-of-the-box. Also with the intention to create a fully automated focuser setup. Its good to know that with the edgeHD 8" SCT setup, you will need to use the original orange adapter plate as well so you keep the full focus range. This is the only additional step needed for a edgeHD 8 and not being documented. The installation is indeed as simple as mentioned in the documentation and was done within 15 minutes.

Baader IR-Pass Filter (685 nm)

Seeing Through the Martian Dust
Review by Ralph
- 26/8/2018

Customer Images

The Baader 685 nm filter has a well-deserved reputation for mitigating the effects of poor seeing when doing Lunar imaging. This year (2018) it proved its worth by permitting the imaging of Martian surface features, despite the veil of dust raised by the planet-wide storm. The 685 nm images stand alone or can be used, in combination with the very uninformative visible (...) » read full review

Baader Hyperion Universal Zoom Mark IV, 8-24mm eyepiece (1¼" / 2")# 2454826

Hyperion Mark 4 Zoom and Barlow combo
Review by Geoff
- 3/8/2018

The nose piece for the zoom lens arrived brand new and is cross-threaded and will not thread any of my filters. Here is Baader's response to my complaint.."Answer: We had indeed problems with a small part of the latest delivery of 1.25" nosepieces, where some of them exceeded the tolerances. We are currently waiting for (...) » read full review

Baader 2"/90° Astro Amici-Prism with BBHS ® coating# 2456120

Beobachtungen an Mond und Jupiter
Review by Gerd Rauscher
- 30/7/2018

Customer Images

Das Amici Prisma wurde bei Mondbeobachtungen in den letzten Tagen eingesetzt, s. beigefügtes, unbearbeitetes Foto. Die seitenrichtige, optisch einwandfreie Darstellung erleichtert speziell beim Mond die Orientierung deutlich (Teleskop: Celestron 925 SC). Höhere Vergrößerungen wurden am Jupiter getestet, mit gutem Resultat. Das Prisma hat zweifellos seinen Preis und einiges an Gewicht, ist aber für mich aufgrund des Beobachtungskomforts der Favorit gegenüber einem Zenitspiegel.

Baader Neodymium (Moon & Skyglow) Filter

Neodymium getestet am Jupiter
Review by Dr. M. Jahnke
- 21/6/2018

Customer Images

Ich bewerte diesen Filter vorerst mit 4 von 5 Sternen - ich habe insgesamt noch zu wenig Erfahrung damit, um gleich die volle Punktzahl zu vergeben. Vorab: Die Vorteile dieses Filters zeigen sich nach meiner bisherigen Erfahrung hauptsächlich bei der visuellen Beobachtung. Fotografisch hat man ja immer die Möglichkeit einer nachträglichen, digitalen (...) » read full review

BDSF: OD 3.8 Baader Digital Solar Filter (80mm - 280mm)

Neuer Filter für mehr Kontrast
Review by Frist
- 3/6/2018

Ich beobachte bereits seit mehreren Jahren mit einer solchen fotografischen Folie die Sonne. Die Halterung habe ich mir dazu aus Tonkarton einfach selbst gebaut. Nun ist meine Folie allerdings etwas in die Jahre gekommen. Der Tonkarton ziemlich abgegriffen und eingerissen - die Folie bekam kleine Löcher und ergab ein immer schlechter (...) » read full review

AstroSolar® Safety Film OD 5.0 (ECO-size, 20x29, 100x50, 117x117 cm)

Multispectral solar imaging technique with Baader Astrosolar
Review by Zeke D
- 30/5/2018

Customer Images

Photosphere and limb are a combination of white light solar terrestrial peaks and NIR. Chromosphere and Corona flows are primarily NIR. Stack and align two images taken less than 15 seconds apart (otherwise there is blurring). Gimp: Grain extract, copy result as new layer - color curves, bisect the spike. Contrast and brightness to your liking. The Sun is never boring. Enjoy the plasma zoo.

Research Grade TZ-3 Telecentric System (3x focal length)# 2459257

Très utile
Review by JR Roudier
- 27/5/2018

Customer Images

J'avais déjà le TZ2 et le TZ4, mais pour utiliser ma caméra Basler 1920/155 au mieux il me fallait un 3x. C'est donc le TZ3 qui m'est très utile. Je l'utilise en observation visuelle et donc en imagerie.

Baader Hyperion Universal Zoom Mark IV, 8-24mm eyepiece (1¼" / 2")# 2454826

Baader zoom, a chance for affordable image quality
Review by wizDUMB
- 12/4/2018

Customer Images

Baader made a adapter ring to fit to a 41.5mm thread, this allowed me to fit the baader hyperion mk4 zoom to my Bausch and Lomb HDR60 scope, I did have a HDF zoom eyepiece on it but the baader hyperion gave much more comfortable view as it is wider, it was like it transformed the scope into a 65mm one after using the other eyepieces...Also using the 41.5mm adapter I fit the baader zoom to my kowa TSN-2 which made a very good scope into a excellent one with very good image from min to maz zoom.

24.3.2018, Mond im ersten Viertel: das Seeing ist heute recht gut, auch bei höchster Vergrößerung wallt das Bild nur etwas, keine hochfrequenten Turbulenzen. Ich habe den 120 mm TSA von Takahashi aufgebaut und mit dem Zeiss-Großfeld- Bino in Kombination mit der Düring-Barlow-Linse bestückt. Die Barlow liefert in dieser Konfiguration eine (...) » read full review
