Summer 2018 is history! And I hardly wrote any update. That's because I was on vacation(s) (!!!) with Olivia and even the blood moon and opposition of Mars resulted in not a single picture. But the nice weather beginnig of September allowed me to collect some photons - even during moonlight, thanks to my narrow-band filters.
On July, 27th, there will be an astronomical Midsummer Night's Dream: Mars is in opposition and the same night, a total lunar eclipse will be visible in Europe. I will open my observatory for public observation aswell, focussing on school kids with their parents.
Since last Saturday, June 16th, the AstroDIY telescope has a new owner. Early in the morning, at 8:00 o'clock we met in the Freiherr-vom-Stein Gymnasium in Berlin.
Since mid of June, there is no more astronomical darkness at the position of my observatory. But nevertheless I can't let go the clear nights and so one premiere follows the next.
Last night, a new era of astro photography started in my observatory: after improving my equipment step by step in the last few years it finally was time to upgrade my camera.
