Mínor Planets

In the year 2015 we planned to photograph the minor planet (5658) Clausbaader. It has had a high altitude in the evening sky, close to Saturn. The series is intended as a small tribute to Mr. Claus Baader, the founder of Baader Planetarium in Mammendorf, who was one of the leading personalities in the field of amateur astronomy and public education in the last century in Germany.

A detailed description and a lot of images we give in our section "Special Project under the headline Minor Planet Clausbaader (5658)
