This website documents our astronomical activities in Namibia. Our primary location is situated at Onjala lodge, roughly 80 km east of Windhoek. Besides our private observatory, Chameleon Observatory, we also have the opportunity to use the Onjala observatory. Additionally, we take pictures at Rooisand observatory which is situated close to the Gamsberg pass. As Rooisand is very close to the Namib desert, weather conditions tend to be better towards the beginning and end of the rainy season than further inland.
