TOC Observatory - Denmark

 

THE OBSERVATORY BUILDING

 

We started building our new observatory  in the beginning of 2002 at a new site around 15 km's north of Aarhus. The outside was finished on the 20th. of July the same year. Here you can se it from the drive way.

 

 

THE TELESCOPE

 

The observatory houses a 12.5 inch f:5 computer controlled Newtonian reflector. We started building the instrument in 1999.
Find link to building project further down on this page.

 

 

The new refractor - Oct. 2006

 

The Sky-Watcher telescope is a short focal length refractor. Aperture: 80 mm f/7.5 ED.
For remote focusing the telescope is equipped with a motor focus device - home build of course. The SkyWatcher is used both as a guiding scope and as a photographic instrument.
Some of the first images: M-31 - The Moon
    

 

 

THE CCD CAMERA

 

August 20th 2004 we got our new Starlight XPress SXV H9 CCD camera. The H9 is a b/w camera featuring 1392 x 1040 pixels and operating with a pixel size of 6.4 um.

YET ANOTHER CCD CAMERA

 

In August 2014 we bought an Atik 383 CCD camera. The photographic field is now four times bigger: 36,63' x 29,51'.
