Crab Nebula

Shot between End of January and February 2012, with about 30 Minutes par channel on my SBIG 2000XM camera. Note the „slight“ miscollimation, not-so-good focus, and grainy image (got only a bad flat-field).

Erstes Bild…First Image…

First CCD Image

 Oh well, after much fiddling with the camera and especially with the pointing of the mount (still far from perfect) I got this image. It’s out of focus, and I have to remove one extension ring to get in focus, but at least I know I can see something 🙂

Dome ready, telescope not

It’s always like that: Everything is ready, but the weather is not. Quite some snowfall and high winds these days, so no observing was possible. In addition, I miscalculated the backfocus of my GSO RC 12″ (it is a whoppin‘ 28cm!), so I still have to wait for some more spacers to get in focus …

Dome nearly complete

A view from my dome, towards the Saslong slope of Val Gardena

After a good month of work, and a few more months of waiting for all the equipment, my new dome is nearly complete. I only had to send in my focuser from Moonlite as it was not working. For the rest, I am quite happy now with the dome (from ScopeDome, the 3 meter version). …

New York, New York

So we’re heading for New York City in April. Excited to get to the big apple, meeting a few friends there and – of course – going to try a good Steak are on top of our list:)

KaribikCaribbean

Manchmal möchte ich mich gerne wie Käptn‘ Jack Sparrow fühlen, wenn er wankend mit einer Flasche Rum in der Hand durch weiße Sandstrände auf einer einsamen Insel herumläuft. Also denke ich zwischendurch auch mal nach, eine Rundreise – am besten Inselhüpfen – in der Karibik zu machen. Hier ein Paar Infos: Wie komm ich dorthin? …

Restyling and re-directing

New Website

Alright… after years of no-blogging (duh!), I managed to get the time for a update at the WordPress installation. I will shortly also switch the whole site to WordPress, but it will take some time to get all the photos and stuff on again. Anyhow, I’ll also try o connect this stuff to Facebook (it …

My Telescope

It’s been a while since my last post. However, in the meantime I’ve got my new telescope, a brand-new LX200GPS 10″ f/10 from Meade. I like this beast, even if I need to build up a bit more muscles just to carry that monster up and down these mountains here :P. No seriously, as now …
