well, it has been an intense year so far for us. Among some planned (and unplanned) upgrades, our new CDK500 is being tested in Spain - finally! 😀
We are, however, already planning for the coming year. The most exciting news are related to a new dome that we will get in Namibia - and we will move our 20" iDK there on a new Planewave mount.
"What will you do with the ASA mount there?", one might ask. Well, we will get a new astrograph for that. 450mm diameter, f4.0, with a new Moravian IMX455 camera on it. Also, we will add a Canon lens with camera for extreme widefield imaging (probabily with a One Shot Color Chip). So, in Namibia, we would end up with these FOV's:
Potentially, we might upgrade the camera of the 20" in Namibia and/or Spain, but this needs to be tested before. Let's see 🙂
