Merry Christmas

December 24 2018, Anita Maier

Once again, we stand at the door of the holiday season.  The first cold days lay behind us and we all look forward to a nice cup of hot cocoa to warm our cold hands.  Oh… and clear-sky Winter nights!  In the past few years, Astroshop has shared several bits of exciting news with stargazers at the end of each year.  At the end you will find a great holiday tip from us.

Astroshop in Dutch

The Belgian Astronomy dealer Astromarket now belongs to the Astroshop family.  With a bigger and more diverse team, we can advise Dutch and Belgian customers in their own language.  Another positive side-effect: as a current customer, you can take advantage of a larger product range, as well as a new show-room in Hasselt, not far from the German border near Aachen.

Mead Telescopes with Service from Distributor

As of August 2018, Astroshop is an official distributor of the well-known telescope brand MEADE in 15 European countries.  Our experts possess extensive knowledge of the Meade product range, meaning you get competent advise and all-around technical service from Astroshop.


Your Own Wide-field Photos with the MiniTrack LX2

The Omegon MiniTrack LX2 is a fully mechanical and extremely compact travel mount, with which you can capture wonderful photos of the night sky.  The magazine Sky & Telescope has awarded the MiniTrack the coveted “Hot Product 2019” award.

By the way

Many other product announcements, regular sales, and other news can be found on our blog on the website. Or just like and follow us on Facebook!


Tip: the Christmas Comet

Just in time for the holidays, an astronomical highlight awaits!  The Christmas Comet, as many have called it, 46P/Wirtanen will take the stage.  On the 16th of December, the comet will reach its closest distance to Earth, and for the following weeks should be visible to the naked eye and easily with a set of binoculars.  In the New Year, we have the pleasure of witnessing a Lunar Eclipse on the 21st of January.


We wish you all clear skies and a wonderful holiday season with family and friends.  We thank you for putting your trust in us and we look forward to being a part of a happy and astronomically successful 2019!



Merry Christmas!

The delicious aroma of Advent cookies is everywhere. Wherever you look, stars and Christmas lights are shining in windows. But, of course, as astronomers, we are not only interested in these earth-bound lights, but also in the stars in firmament. We have launched interesting new products under the Omegon brand this year to help you do this even better:

Our new, waterproof Omegon Panorama II eyepieces give you a wide 100° field of view to better enjoy the stars. Astronomical objects appear in a completely new light!

The new Omegon ADC Atmospheric Dispersion Corrector lets you take sharp planetary photos and reduces colour fringing.

Another highlight for astrophotographers is our new released Omegon RC telescopes and fast astrographs.

Our excellent ProDob Dobsonian telescopes – from 8 to 16 inches in aperture – will bring a gleam to the eyes of many visual observers.


This is just a small selection from among the many new products we have developed. Other manufacturers have also brought some interesting new products onto the market this year. More about this can be found in our blog as well as in our Facebook page.

The Christmas season is traditionally a time of reflection on what really matters in life – for example helping other people. So this year we are making a donation of 10,000 € to the ‘Mercy Ships’ , relief organisation, who operate the world’s largest private hospital ship which is used to carry out operations in the world’s poorest countries.

We wish you a host of clear nights under the stars and a Merry Christmas with family and friends. We would like to thank you for your confidence in us and look forward with you to a happy and astronomically successful year in 2018!
