Lumicon filters at a special price!

February 6 2020, Jan Ströher

The Lumicon name stands for high quality astronomical filters, both for visual observing and astrophotography.

This special offer means we can now offer you a selection of different filters from this American manufacturer at a 20% discount.

The following filters are now available at a special price:

Neutral Density (ND) filters – ideal for lunar observing:

IR blocking filters for increasing sharpness when photographing the Moon and planets:

Violet-blocking filters for reducing colour fringing with achromatic refractors:

Comet filters for better observing of the coma and tail:

H-Beta filter for very faint nebulae:

Also: Colour filters for planetary observing and astrophotography:

Blue filters

Blue filters above all make the details of the atmospheres of Jupiter and Saturn more visible, as well as those of the surface of Mars.

Dark blue is excellent for detecting cloud bands and the Great Red Spot (GRS) on Jupiter.

Red filters

Red filters increase contrast with the Moon and reveal the polar caps on Mars. Dark red filters should only be used on larger telescopes.

Light red gives a strong increase in contrast with the Moon, as well as allowing easier observing of Mercury and Venus at dusk.

Violet filters

Violet filters are used for observing Venus (cloud structures) and increase contrast with Saturn’s rings.

Green filters

Green filters enhance the contrast of surface details on the Moon, as well as details in the cloud structures of Jupiter (GRS) and Saturn (bands).

Light green also allows better observing of the ice caps on Mars.

Yellow filters:

Yellow filters suppress colour fringing with achromatic refractors and can be used as universal contrast filters for various objects in our solar system.

Yellow-green filters allow atmospheric details on Jupiter and Saturn to be detected more easily, even in smaller telescopes.

Yellow-orange filters increase contrast when observing Mars.

These special prices are only valid until 31 March 2020 and only while stocks last. Get yours now!

Explore Scientific Twilight AZ – the uncomplicated mount!

March 27 2017, Stefan Taube

The equatorial mount with GoTo functionality is not necessarily a must-have.  Sometimes you just want to have a quick look at the moon or the planets, search for a comet or observe large areas of the sky with a suitable refractor. In this case, an uncomplicated and quickly available azimuthal mount is fits the bill.

The new Twilight I AZ from Explore Scientific is just such a mount. It accommodates telescopes with a weight of up to eight kilograms – which is quite strong for a mount of this class.

ES-Twilight-AZ

Moving to the desired objects is a simple task: With just one lever each you can loosen the clamps of the elevation and the azimuth axis and quickly move the telescope. Once you have retightened the clamps, you use the two flexible shafts and the precision worm gear for fine tuning and tracking.

The mounting saddle accommodates telescopes with a prism rail, compatible with the very popular Vixen standard. With the enclosed Allen key, the mount arm can be adjusted to optimize the viewing height of your optical system and to make sure that the telescope will not hit the tripod leg. Speaking of tripods: the Twilight I AZ comes with a steel tripod with extendible legs and an eyepiece tray.

The mount Twilight I AZ is currently available for a price of 279 Euro – an excellent price for a mount of this quality!

DeepSky-Set: Cooled camera ASI 1600 with filter and filter wheel from ZWO

March 13 2017, Stefan Taube

ASI 1600 MM series cameras from ZWOptical have really found their place in astrophotography. With its small pixels, the highly sensitive CMOS sensor offers high resolution, and this even in connection with a relatively big sensor diameter.

We now offer the cooled black and white camera of the ASI 1600 series in a set with a motorized filter wheel and suitable filters: ASI 1600 MMC DeepSky-Imaging-Set for a price of 2,019 Euro. You save 29 Euro when compared with individual prices!

ASI-1600-MMC-Mono-DeepSky-Imaging-Set

A camera with active cooling is optimal for taking photos of nebulae and galaxies, because the cooling reduces sensor noise and thus enables long exposure times. This enables you to even take photos of very faint objects in the sky.

Even though the cooled ASI 1600 is available as colour or black and white camera, only the black and white camera offers the full resolution of the sensor. Ambitious photographers therefore favour this variant. In order to show the colour of the celestial object you just simply take photos through three colour and one luminance filters – the latter to increase brightness. The computer then uses these four images to produce a colour image (L-RGB method).

The filters are placed into a filter wheel, so that the camera does not have to be removed and realigned again for each filter change. The filter change simply takes place by turning the wheel. The filter wheel in the Set with the ASI 1600 is electrically powered and controlled via the camera, meaning you do not need an additional cable connecting to your computer. You simply use the camera control to change from one filter to the next, and this, above all, without having to touch anything.

The four filters in the DeepSky-Imaging-Set were specially developed for the ASI 1600. The colour weighting has been optimized for its sensor, which in this case is a high-quality interferential filter. Since the filters are parfocal to one another, the focus position does not change when changing the filter. Besides the three filters for the red, green and blue channel, the set also contains an UV/IR band-rejection filter for luminance.

Just as the graph concerning the filter transparency (transmission) of the set indicates, the filters block out the disturbing light of many street lamps, but are highly sensitive in the red range of the H-Alpha and SII-line. The transmission rate is greater than 92%.

Transmission

With the ASI 1600 MMC DeepSky-Imaging-Set you receive a high-quality, yet reasonable, camera system with almost unlimited possibilities!

 

Now available: Omegon Autoguiding-Set with 15% price advantage

February 6 2017, Marcus Schenk

Simply useful for astrophotography: a guidescope and an autoguider, with which you can control your long exposure photographs and ensure perfect and dot-shaped tracked shots.
Omegon now offers a mini guidescope with a 50 mm or 60 mm diameter. With the Touptek Autoguider GCMOS01200KMB Mono the whole system becomes an astrophoto control base.


Even more economical in a set

You can also buy the mini guidescope in a set with the Touptek guider.
Your advantage: buying the set you save up 15% compared with the individual products:
1. Omegon camera Easy Autoguiding-Set50
2. Omegon camera Easy Autoguiding-Set60

 

Why these guidescopes are so convenient

Until recently, photographers used long refractors mounted parallel to the main telescope, which require their own tube clamps, are impractical and, all in all, very heavy. Used on a stationary telescope, there is no problem. But what if you want your telescope to be portable? With the new mini guidescopes, it is as simple never before. Simply mount the guidescope to your existing finderbase, connect the camera – and you are ready to go. Plus, it is not much heavier than a common finderscope. We think this is really convenient! This way you can even use smaller telescopes for taking photos of DeepSky objects.

What are your astronomical plans for 2017? To take your best astrophoto? With our new technology this dream can easily become a reality.
