Chamäleon- Onjala und Rooisand Observatory


  German      Home      back to the News
On this page we show an overview of our DeepSky imaging, which we have taken at above named observatories in Namibia. Most of the images was taken between the years 2013 and 2016. A small number of images was taken at Rooisand Observatory between the years 2004 and 2011. These images are marked with a little red square

All imgaes will be open in a seperate browser window, just click the thumbnail to load a higher resolution image. Also image data can be seen.

The following telescopes was used for image acquisition:
 
  • TEC 110mm - f/5.6
  • Zeiss APQ 130mm - f/7.7
  • Astro Physics EDFS 130mm - f/6
  • Zeiss APQ 150mm - f/8
  • PlaneWave 12.5" Astrograph - f/6.8
  • PlaneWave 17" Astrograph - f/6.8
  • Celestron 11 Hyperstar - f/2
  • Celestron C 14 - f/11
Partly we was using focal reducers and/or lenses for field flattening. For image acquisition we was using several Canon EOS DSLR cameras (normal and astro modified/cooled) and CCD modules from SBIG and QHY. The images above show from left to right: Onjala,- Chamäleon- und Rooisand Observatory.
